Dr Jonas, your host for the Dr. Synonymous Show, is delighted to get to interview Dr. Therese Zink again about her newest book, Mission Chechnya, a novel reflecting many of her insights about that area of the world and global health issues. She will discuss the origin of the book, its background and her own, and her passion for writing and global health.
The book starts with a birth in the airport bathroom and moves from there to provide perspectives on health needs and issues in Chechyna through well described characters.
General questioning will include these type questions:
How did you come to be a book author?
Are you a reader, too?
