Guest Speaker: Sarah Thebarge
Sarah Thebarge is a speaker, blogger, author and physician assistant who studied medicine at Yale School of Medicine, and journalism at Columbia University.
Her first book, The Invisible Girls, is a memoir that weaves her story of nearly dying of breast cancer in her 20’s together with the story of a Somali refugee family she met on a train in Portland, Oregon, as she was recovering from her cancer treatments. Her latest book, WELL, details the time she spent practicing medicine at a hospital in Togo, West Africa, which the United Nations ranked the Least Happy Country in the World. In WELL, Sarah uses medicine as a metaphor for how each of us can help to heal our beautiful, broken world.
