Local media can play an important role in raising awareness about ReSurge and its work. Whether it is host-country journalists interested in covering our work in the field or journalists right here in the Bay Area who come to our headquarters for interviews, outlets like these expose readers not only to ReSurge's global impact, but also to the influence our organization has at the community level.
On the recent team trip to Bolivia, for instance, volunteer anesthesiologist Fabian Okonski, M.D. (Los Gatos, CA) took some time out of the OR to do an interview with a local television station about the surgeries the team provided in La Paz, Bolivia.
ReSurge also attracted the attention of La Prensa, the most widely circulated print newspaper in Nicaragua, on its recent trip to Ingenio, San Antonio. Below, volunteer anesthesiologist Mike Beach, M.D. (Hanover, NH) speaks to journalists with the help of translator and ReSurge staff member Dora Rusin-Gomez.
ReSurge was also recently featured in the San Jose Mercury News when our partners were recognized by The REAL Awards. Read the full article here and please share it with your friends and family if you haven't already!
