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 86 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.
