In June 2012, Dr. Bruce Lehnert -- medical director of the International Extremity Project -- is taking an elite group of U.S. and foreign physicians to Namibia in South West Africa.
While there, Dr. Lehnert will meet with Namibian President Hifikepunye Pohamba and Dr. Richard M. Kamwi, the Minister of Health, to organize an ongoing medical presence.
This upcoming mission will include lectures in the School of Medicine at the University of Namibia and at public hospitals in the capital city of Windhoek.
Dr. Lehnert and his team will also train local physicians in surgery for:
- traumatic conditions
- sports medicine
- deformity correction
