Health care workers head to Panama

HealthcareGrowing up in London, Zee Lewis enjoyed many advantages, some owing to the fact her father worked as a surgeon. But given his profession, the young girl also saw her share of people coping with illness. "We had a great life, but he showed us the other side of life, of pain and suffering," she said.
