Joanne Liu has served as International President of Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) from 2013 to 2019. MSF is a leading voice on medical humanitarian crises, providing medical assistance to those in need. Dr. Liu’s role builds on a career of field work with MSF, including over 20 medical missions. She trained at McGill University School of Medicine, and holds a Fellowship in Paediatric Emergency Medicine, as well as a Master’s in Health Leadership. Dr. Liu’s operational work has ranged from introducing comprehensive care for survivors of sexual violence, to developing a telemedicine platform for connecting doctors in rural areas with specialists worldwide. She believes strongly in MSF’s unique ability to operate in the field whilst delivering high-quality, patient-centered care.

Stanford School of Medicine Senior Communications Strategist Paul Costello will interview Dr. Liu about her work.
