Hankin-Wei volunteers as the only trained emergency medicine physician in Mozambique. In addition to providing much-needed specialty care, she has partnered with a local medical school to start the country’s first emergency medicine residency program, and has also focused on improving infrastructure, co-writing a grant with local ICU physicians to fund hospital repairs and enhancements. Hankin-Wei will receive the award Nov. 15 in Washington D.C.
