At least once a year I'm subjected to a lament by a certain doctor I know about the horrors of managed health care. Next time I'll have a response: Join Doctors Without Borders. A year or so in Darfur, Sudan, or earthquake-devastated Pakistan, or maybe a few months attending to children whose limbs have been hacked off by rebels in Sierra Leonethat oughta help you get some perspective. Just so happens aid workers from the international organization are hosting a panel discussion Wednesday from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Caruth Auditorium at SMU's Owen Arts Center, and recruiters will make their pitch afterward. Whaddya say, Dad? For more information, visit doctorswithoutborders.org/education/lectures/index.cfm.
