Giving Back in Unique and Meaningful Ways
In 2010, Dr. Vib Kshettry, Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation® researcher and surgeon at the Minneapolis Heart Institute® at Abbott Northwestern Hospital, traveled to Ethiopia with a pediatric cardiac surgery team from the Minneapolis Heart Institute® to perform life-saving surgeries. This was part of a growing initiative led by healthcare professionals from across the Twin Cities to help Ethiopia develop its first cardiac surgery team and create a program to prevent Ethiopian children from acquiring rheumatic heart disease (RHD).
