Ann Lurie in Africa: "Chicago Care a Continent Away”

"Chicago Care a Continent Away” follows WGN News reporter Dina Bair as she reports from a remote, primitive village in Africa. The most technologically advanced healthcare is being delivered thanks to the generosity and tenacity of Chicago Philanthropist Ann Lurie.
 
By enlisting Chicago doctors to help in the cause, bringing dozens of Kenyans to Chicago to study medicine, and building a full service hospital, Ann Lurie is saving lives and changing a culture.

Sadly, the village's clinic has since closed. Learn more on WGN-TV's Medical Watch.
