Bruce Campbell

About the artist: 

Bruce Campbell is an otolaryngologist who travels each year from the Medical College of Wisconsin to Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in Eldoret, Kenya, as a part of the work of AMPATH (Academic Model Providing Access to Healthcare), a not-for-profit partnership between hospitals and universities in North America and in Kenya. He is currently enrolled in the program for certification in professional achievement in narrative medicine at Columbia University. 

About the artwork:

"This looks like luggage, but it represents love. Our group of US surgeons brings as many surgical supplies as possible each year when traveling to Kenya for our two-week surgical camp. The bags are filled with supplies that have been donated, purchased or saved from being thrown away. Without the generosity of dozens of people, our surgical work would not be possible."
