    Hello Dr. Browning

    I am a global project manager for the Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada (SOGC) and we are just starting a project in the Tabora Region. My colleague, David Quinlan, who worked with you in Ethiopia with fistula repair, recommended that I contact you and make my introductions. Perhaps our paths will cross…
