Below is an excerpt from the cover story, written by Angela Johnson Meadow
Dr. Carryl is one of a growing number of medical professionals of color who volunteer their services in needy areas of Africa and the Caribbean.
“For years, we had a big problem getting doctors to commit their time,” says Carryl, who uses his vacation time to participate in health missions. “A lot of that has changed in the last five years.”
“Now, every mission we’re limited by the number of people that can be accommodated, not the number of people interested in going,” Carryl says.
