Hanna was born and raised in Israel, where she completed medical school. She relocated with her family to the US 17 years ago, and completed her residency at UAMS in rural Arkansas. Hanna has been an associate professor in the Family and Community Medicine Department, in Columbia, MO. for 10 years, where she loves taking care of patients of all ages.
Over the last several years, she developed a passion for global medicine, traveling to various places such as Nicaragua, India, Haiti, the Philippines, Ethiopia and Jamaica, where she sees patients in clinics and teaches at the local medical schools. Hanna instantly fell in love with Ethiopia the first time she visited the country back in 2014. It started as another medical mission, but she ended up falling in love with the kids of New Hope, and she has been back many additional times. Ethiopia, New Hope, and the kids there are a big part of her heart and her life, and it was only natural for her to join Tomorrow Come Foundation.
She is hoping to continue building strong relationships with the kids, support them emotionally and help shape their lives and their futures. In addition, Hanna is also planning to continue collaborating with the local medical schools in Ethiopia, and hopefully create more opportunities for sharing knowledge, education and experiences.
