2010 Canadian Tour

Virginia (Ginny) Morrison

Virginia (Ginny) Morrison has completed four assignments with MSF, most recently in 2008 in Chad near the border with Darfur, where she was Field Coordinator for a hospital providing health care to over 27,000 IDPs. Her previous assignment, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, was also in an IDP camp. Her first two assignments were Angola; in 2005, she responded to an outbreak of the Marburg virus, a highly contagious relative of the ebola virus, and in 2004 she helped establish a program to treat sleeping sickness, or human African trypanosomiasis (HAT).  Ms. Morrison lives and works near Boston. She holds a BA in Political Science from Colby College, a MSc in Nursing from Yale, and completed Family Nurse Practitioner certification at the University of Michigan. She hopes that her new 3 month old daughter Aliya likes to work with MSF as much as her mother!
