    Implementing Medical and Dental Programs During Complex Humanitarian Crises  

    Speakers: Dr. Michelle Sandberg and Dr. Lior Tamir

    In the aftermath of a humanitarian crisis, the healthcare infrastructure in affected areas is usually stretched beyond capacity, while the needs of the population dramatically increase. Participants will gain a technical understanding of the implementation of healthcare programs for displaced populations in developing countries. The emphasis of the talk will be healthcare for refugees domiciled in camp environments.

    Please note: This workshop will provide dental CE credits for dentists and dental hygienists.

    Dr. Michelle Sandberg is a pediatrician in San Jose, California, providing primary care for children of all ages, from little ones to teenagers. Dr. Sandberg deployed to Kakuma, Kenya, with IsraAID, implementing trainings and direct medical care in refugee camps.

    Dr. Lior Tamir is the founder of Bloom Dental Group, where he is a cosmetic and reconstructive dentist. Dr. Tamir focuses on providing comprehensive patient care and incorporating technology to improve the overall patient experience. He has worked with IsraAID in Kakuma, Kenya, training and providing direct dental care to local populations of the four largest refugee camps in the world.

    In partnership with IsraAid, the OFJCC, PJCC and Peninsula congregations. Generously supported by the Koret Foundation and the Lisa and Douglas Goldman Fund.
