Progress & Innovation in Global Surgery

Tuesday, February 14, 2017 at 2:30pm to 3:30pm

Soto Street Building (SSB), 105
2001 N. Soto Street , Los Angeles, CA 90033

In this lecture William Magee III, director of international programs at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, will discuss the progress and innovation making surgery safe and accessible around the world.

An academic surgeon at USC, Magee treats complex surgical cases, mentors trainees, conducts interdisciplinary research and translates projects in regions around the world. The son of Operation Smile’s founders, he witnessed at a young age the challenges children with deformities face in developing countries where access to safe surgery is limited. These experiences led to a lifelong conviction to serve children and disrupt surgical inequality.

This event will include the USC Global Health Case Competition certificate ceremony and finalist announcement.

This talk is part of the 2016-2017 USC Global Health Lecture Series and is co-hosted by the USC Institute for Global Health, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles & Operation Smile.
