Dr. Rick Hodes: One Physician’s Journey in Ethiopia

Description: When Dr. Rick Hodes went to Ethiopia in 1985 to assist with famine relief efforts he never expected to stay. Join Hodes to hear about his life’s work with the people of Ethiopia.”Dr. Rick Hodes’ life story is a reminder that giving is a privilege in which we may take pleasure, not some saintly endeavor. His approach toward medicine should be a model for our current Western system in showing that tending to the soul is at the center of healing.” (Natalie Portman, Oscar winning actress)Hodes is the medical director of Ethiopia for the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), a 95-year old NGO. Over the years, his work has focused on the health of Ethiopians immigrating to Israel. Currently, he is the senior medical consultant at a Catholic mission in Ethiopia. He has also worked with refugees in Rwanda, Zaire, Tanzania, Somalia and Albania.
