Other goals and objectives include:

2015 Family Medicine Global Health Conference Recap

Participants in the Fourth Annual St.Vincent Family Medicine Global Health Conference were given the most recent evidence into the research in environmental enteropathy by pediatric gastroenterologist Dr. Sean Moore from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.

Dr. Louis Winternheimer, St.Vincent Family Medicine graduate and current medical director at Raphael Health Center in Indianapolis, shared many of his experiences and joys in caring for urban underserved populations in Chicago and Indianapolis, and encouraged attendees to practice “Professional Closeness.”

Finally, Dr. Michael Berend of the Midwest Center for Joint Replacement recounted his experiences and best practices in performing joint replacement in low resource countries and training local physicians in the skill and aftercare through their group, Operation Walk.

This year we were able to offer a live videostream to those interested, but who could not attend. We intend to use the same technology for our upcoming conferences. Archived video recordings of the presentations are available at
