Dr. Steve Penner talks about Family Medicine

Steve Penner, MD, Volunteer Faculty, Family and Community Medicine, University of Kansas School of Medicine –Wichita, and national AAFP ((The American Academy of Family Physicians) volunteer teacher of the year in 2003, was asked to travel to Paraguay to educate  Paraguayans about community-based education. Upon his return, Dr. Penner filed the following report:

About 1 1/2 years ago, I was asked to consider going to Paraguay to obtain a better sense of what medicine, and, in particular, Family Medicine is like in Paraguay. Because of work and family responsibilities, I delayed going for a year. On August 17, 2008, I left for Paraguay with a travel grant from Kansas-Paraguay Partnership, an organization under Partners of the Americas located in Washington, DC.
