Mrs. Tolisano and I had the most wonderful evening on Thursday.
We had dinner at the home of Dr. Amal. Dr. Amal is the aunt of one of our own San Jose Episcopal students, Summer. Dr. Amal was wonderful. She fed us a delicious, typical Egyptian meal and we were able to learn of the important work she does as a physician in Cairo. She is a professor of medicine at Cairo University and a specialist dealing with health problems that are caused by pollutants found in the earth, air, and water.
She often attends international conferences, from China to Germany and even in the United States. She is constantly trying to help the people of Egypt and is working on bringing new medicines and treatments to Cairo. Dr. Amal shares what she has learned with other doctors around the world. She has been to Jacksonville to visit Summer and her family.
Of course, Mrs.Tolisano started talking to Dr. Amal about how she could use technology to work with other doctors around the world. Mrs. Tolisano told Dr. Amal how to set up her own blog. Mrs. Tolisano will soon have everyone blogging. Talk about making global connections. Dr. Amal is an amazing woman and has done great things for healthcare in Egypt and we are sure will continue to do so.
Take a peek at Dr. Amal’s wonderful home.
