Dr. Courtney Howard, MD

We arrived here last week, sweaty, towing our children, to find two giant posters of icebergs (I took them to be the Arctic on our first day–it is possible they are at the South Pole.)  It was astonishing to come to the jungle and find icy iconography.  We definitely don’t have any photos of orangutans in the hospital in Yellowknife!

Take a look at the video with head physician, Dr Nomi to check out her explanation for why cold places are on the minds of MDs here in the rainforest.

Why does ASRI’s hospital in Borneo feature two giant posters of icebergs?
