After three decades of helping people around the world, Cochrane Doctor Bill Hanlon is being awarded a prestigious medical award from Ireland that honours those who make exceptional contributions to medicine and society.
“We need to open up to other cultures and not build walls,” Hanlon said, after returning from a recent expedition to Russia.
“What I loved about this trip was it pares down things. You are selective on what you bring and it pares it down to the minimum. Food, shelter, health – the rest is just extra. If we took more to other people in the world, it would make a big difference and not really impact us here.”
