Jungle M.D.

Thousands of indigenous Brazilians live in remote villages scattered along the Amazon River with no access to modern medical care. Government support is scarce. But now, one of the country’s top neurosurgeons, Erik Jennings, has taken it upon himself to fill this gap. His family has lived in the Amazon for generations, and he makes ‘house calls’ to these isolated tribes out of a sense of affinity with the native peoples that live in the rainforests along the river.
