Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.
Filmed at the 2019 EACTS Annual Meeting in Lisbon, Portugal, Jill Ley of California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, California, moderates a discussion on cardiac surgery missions. She is joined by Enoch F. Akowuah of South Tees Hospitals NHS Trust in the United Kingdom and Percy Boateng of Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York. They discuss their past surgery missions, the challenges of these trips for the team, the goal to help mission sites become more self-sufficient, and how to get involved.
