Working with refugees and displaced populations

During the last two surgical trips, Dr. Moubayed has volunteered with the Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS). SAMS is a 1400 member organisation working in 6 different countries to provide free of charge medical care to all patients, regardless of religious or political affiliations. In 2017, they have dispersed over 3.5 million medical services.
