Dr. Kendra Wiggins
I am a family doctor working at a Community Health Center in Santa Barbara, California, in addition to wrangling two amazing little humans. In my youth I majored in Global Studies before serving in the Peace Corps in El Salvador, which led to a career in medicine for the purpose of social justice. While I get to fulfill this purpose on a daily basis working in a vulnerable, underserved community, our resources are bountiful in comparison to many parts of the world. I am humbled to have this opportunity to support the incredible work of Mali Medical Relief.
