We were invited by our former partner, Seanan Fong, to attend this year's Community Health Symposium at Stanford. Seanan had taken a brief hiatus from his undergraduate studies late last year and during his time off, traveled extensively through China to document our work with Little Red Scarf. Last Thursday evening, he had the opportunity to present some of that work to his peers through a poster at the conference, as well as through his brief talk. In his 7-minute presentation, he took the audience through the story of Little Jiao, who he followed from pre-op to post-op. He also shared his experience interacting with people from rural areas of China and introduced the Chao Foundation's Service Scholar program. We hope that Seanan's experience will inspire other college students to get involved with work in less industrialized areas. We are grateful to Seanan for the effort he put into raising awareness for Little Red Scarf's work and congratulate him on his success at the symposium!
