Podcast: Cardiologist Travels to Ukraine to Provide Medical Care to Refugees
It’s been over a month since Russia invaded Ukraine. For Dr. Alex Hajduczok, a first-year cardiologist fellow at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, the war, at first, felt, inconceivable, and then felt impossible to follow from the sidelines. In this episode, he tells us about traveling to Medyka, Poland, a town just on the Polish/Ukrainian border, to provide medical care to the thousands of Ukrainian refugees arriving there each day. The nine days he spent at the pop-up medical tent changed his life and will forever impact his life’s work as a cardiologist, and his deep appreciation for his Ukrainian heritage
