Dr. John D. Cahill, M.D. is a physician and medical educator who founded the Center for Global Collaboration & Health Initiatives. While studying abroad in medical school and after his postgraduate medical training at Brown University, Dr. Cahill spent time in Southeast Asia & Africa. The problem was that there was a general lack of medical education towards the practice of emergency medicine, infectious diseases and public health. Dr. Cahill started to create basic simple training programs for the local healthcare providers in those regions. Therefore, Dr. Cahill created the Center because of the impact he has had on thousands of lives.
