DR. MALIKA KACHANI, Professor of Veterinary Medicine at Western University of Health Sciences, Pomona, and a member of our Chapter, reported on her summer in Morocco to which she regularly takes students for field work. This past summer she took both MD an DVM students, and focused especially on diseases which affect both humans and animals and how to control them. The group spent time in Fez and then out in villages, where they visited local homes (including Malika's own family) and participated in many ways in the local culture. Malika herself sponsors 5 children in Morocco, seeing that they have food and clothing and get an education; all these children speak Arabic, but they also learn French. Pictures from all these visits enlivened the audience's understanding of life in Moroccan villages.
Malika pointed out the challenge of preparing American students for the exceedingly simple life of rural villages.
...
Malika is helping organize a Workshop which will bring together international experts and local people to think about the transfer of diseases between animals and people. This international effort is gaining cooperation from a number of countries: Germany, Italy, Bolivia and China have expressed willingness to spend money on the project. There is need to broaden the horizons of all medical workers with informal contacts as well as formal instruction and expanded research.
Malika reported that despite the challenges, the students had a wonderful summer, loved the country and the people. For some it was a life-changing experience. Though Malika was not complaining, in answer to questions, she admitted that the only difficulty was with the American immigration service!
