Pediatrician to Speak on Role in “Doctors Without Borders” Sept. 29

9/12/05

Jerry S. Ehrlich, M.D., will present a lecture at MCCC entitled: “A Mission With Doctors Without Borders, the Experiences of an American Pediatrician in Darfur.” The lecture is the first in MCCC’s Distinguished Lecture Series for the fall semester and will take place on Thursday, Sept. 29 at 12 noon in the Communications Building, CM110 on the college's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. The program is free and open to the public.

Dr. Ehrlich will discuss his experiences as a volunteer with “Doctors Without Borders,” focusing on the atrocities that occurred in the Darfur region of the Sudan in 2004 from his perspective as a “hands-on” pediatrician in the refugee camps. Included in the lecture will be slides of children’s artwork that Dr. Ehrlich brought back from the camps.

Dr. Ehrlich's work at the scenes of international crises has been extensive. He served with "Doctors Without Borders" in Sri Lanka in 1991, 1999 and 2000. He also worked at missions in Haiti in 1994 and 1995, and at refugee camps in the Republic of Georgia in 1998.

Certified by the American Board of Pediatrics, Dr. Ehrlich practices in Cherry Hill, NJ. He received his medical degree from the University of Amsterdam School of Medicine (Netherlands) and completed his internship and residency at Cooper Medical Center. He earned his bachelor's degree in Pharmacy from Rutgers University.
