Dr. John Podgore

Dr. Podgore chooses to come to Malawi annually to treat malaria during the height of malaria season, where in some hospitals found children will occupy one bed because of the overwhelming number patients and lack of facilities.

During his time in Malawi, Dr. Podgore’s main focus is his mentoring program for fourth-year medical students, mostly from the University of North Texas Health Science Center, Fort Worth.  The program, centered at Daeyang Luke Hospital, a Korean charity hospital located outside Lilongwe, provides students a broad knowledge of infectious diseases and medicine in Africa.
