Burn/Trauma Unit hosts a special visitor

The Burn/Trauma Unit recently hosted a special visitor.

Zarifa Ghafari, the mayor of Maidan Shar—a province of Afghanistan—visited the Burn Center on March 10 to gather knowledge on how to develop a burn clinic in her province.

Ghafari, who’s in the United States to receive the International Women of Courage Award, is one of Afghanistan’s first female mayors of a major population center. She became mayor of Maidan Shar at 26 and serves as a symbol of empowerment to women in Afghanistan and around the globe.
