Summary "When the American Refugee Committee of Minneapolis sent a small medical team to tend the sick and starving refugees on the war-torn Thai-Cambodian border in 1979, the fledging nonprofit had no idea its work would last into the twenty-first century. Neither did many of ARC's volunteer nurses and physicians, who realized when they returned to Minnesota that they and western medicine needed to change if non-English-speaking refugees had any hope of better health care upon their arrival in America."
