Healthcare professionals have a strong record of service to forgotten people. However, launching into this career tract is not as easy. First, unique professional skills may be required for the diseases are different, medical resources are minimal, cultural context is 
challenging, and for most of us leadership skills are deficient. Secondly, caring for forgotten people also require a unique set of
