This press release details the global recognition of two health workers, who today will receive prestigious global health awards at the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington, D.C., in recognition of their work caring for child burn victims and others with surgically repairable conditions around the world.When Dr. Nancy Chee, a hand therapist in San Francisco, and Dr. Shafquat Khundkar, one of the first plastic surgeons in Bangladesh, met in Dhaka 10 years ago to help restore functionality for disabled burn survivors, they never dreamed that they would be together again in Washington, DC, as two of only 26 global health worker recipients of The REAL Awards, presented by Save the Children and the Frontline Health Workers Coalition at 5pm EST on Wednesday, April 9, in Dirksen Senate Office Building. In 2004, Drs. Chee and Khundkar, both with ReSurge International, treated dozens of poor patients with surgery and physical therapy so they could use their hands and arms again after debilitating burns caused their wounds to contract and fuse, and their limbs to become useless. Over the last decade, they have treated hundreds more and built the capacity of medical professionals in developing countries, with Khundkar founding the first plastics residency program in Bangladesh and with Chee teaching hand therapy as a volunteer in South Asia. Today, Chee and Khundkar will be reunited as they are honored among a select group of top global health workers at The REAL Awards -- a first-of-its-kind global awards program designed to celebrate and honor the lifesaving work of healthcare workers around the world.
