Put on your country gear, rope up yer' loved ones and head over to the Mission for the grandest Hoedown that SF has ever seen. We'll supply the food, drinks and the best boot tapping music you've ever heard.

Front Junk is a junk band extraordinaire (washboard, suitcase drums, banjo, and harmonica) and they will get us primed for the maestro of SF country, Toshio Hirano (

Bring some of that ol' fashioned cash because we're raisin' money to bring two Iraqi docs over to the USofA.

Please forward this invite to your friends and family.

(Of course, any additional food or drink is always appreciated).

The mission of the Crisis Health Initiative (CHI) is to facilitate academic partnerships and educational programs that train physicians and health workers in public health and crisis humanitarian assistance.

CHI's first initiative, Iraq Hope, promotes peace and stability in Iraq through public health and medical educational programs and scholar exchanges. Iraqi physicians are given the opportunity to study in the USA before returning to Iraq to train and lead their colleagues in humanitarian assistance initiatives.
