Guatemala’s Wise ‘Doctor Pablo’

Wise, who is now a pediatrics professor at the Stanford School of Medicine and senior fellow at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSI), has since returned to Guatemala each summer to provide medical care, train local health promoters, conduct research and talk to various organizations and agencies.

“You have to get out and go to these places,” Wise said. “You can’t do justice work in Guatemala sitting in Palo Alto.”
