My good friend Dr. Elizabeth Toll, pediatrician, professor of pediatrics and medicine at the Warren Alpert School of Medicine at Brown University, has done it again.
Her piece in the Rhode Island Medical Journal.
Her timely, moving portrait of the immigrants of the Bhutanense-Nepali refugee community is emblematic of the struggles and triumphs of immigrants in the United States. As an immigrant myself, I can relate. As a physician, I can relate.
She writes, however, for all humans. She shows us connection, and community.
It is heartbreaking, on-the-ground insightful, and I derived great solace from her soulful writing.
