About This Blog

Welcome to Hatcherscene! I hope you enjoy the cultural insights and humanitarian news presented through original writings and re-posts. I have a doctorate in cultural/medical anthropology from the University of Connecticut. My travel includes over 200 trips to 90 countries and territories on six continents.

I've managed volunteer surgeons and operating room personnel on short-term international missions and taken university students on travel study and humanitarian trips to Asia, South America and Africa. In 2008, I founded Humanitarian Travel Abroad making trips available to volunteers of all ages. Some of the posts here will be about our activities written by team members while traveling. In 2012, I founded Corawill, Inc., a US registered 501(c)(3), to support programs aiding under served children worldwide.
