For more than 30 years, our very own Dr. Glen Crawford and his wife Dr. Sue Abkowitz have been spending a few weeks to a few months each year volunteering their time in countries such as Indonesia, Bhutan, Vietnam, South Africa, Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania.

They have built clinics, sent many 40-foot containers of medical equipment, supported educational and environment programs, developed sports programs and much, much more.

They recently were highlighted and interviewed for Portsmouth Regional Hospital’s Employee Spotlight to share about their adventures.

We are so grateful to have a humanitarian like Dr. Crawford on our team!
