Medical Mission to Tibet (Aired on November 7 & 8, 2015)
Red Hook Rotarian Gale Wolfe is interviewed about her participation in a medical mission to Tibet for this “live from the meeting” RadioRotary interview, recorded during a regular meeting of the Red Hook Rotary Club. Gale accompanied her husband, Dr. Dean Bloch, an obstetrician-gynecologist, and various other medical personnel on a mission to bring aid to a remote village in Tibet. Their whole family took part, as the 14-year-old brought eyeglasses, the 17-year old organized the Tibetan patients, and the 19-year-old and Gale both helped out in the dental clinic, where hundreds of teeth were pulled. The team, housed in a Tibetan nunnery as arranged by a monk from the Red Hook Buddhist center, helped nearly a thousand Tibetans during the week-long mission.
