U-M medical students are providing weekly "telemedical" advice to senior citizens in Sri Lanka.
Perumal Pillai, seventy-five, lives at Grace Care Center, an orphanage and elder care facility in Sri Lanka. For seven years he was blind.
Then, five months ago, Pillai had surgery to remove cataracts from one eye. He's still waiting for an operation on the other, but he's already regained enough vision to see his two daughters for the first time in years--which, he says, gave him new reason to live.
