About the Author
Radiologist-turned-activist Juliette M. Engel, M.D., a former UW assistant professor in the Department of Radiology, drastically changed the course of her life in 1992. She sold a successful diagnostic ultrasound practice in Bellevue, Washington to establish the MiraMed Institute, a nonprofit that sought to improve obstetric care in Russia and now focuses on advancing human rights for women and children. She went on to cofound two nongovernmental organizations to further her vision in Russia: the Angel Coalition and Women and Children First.
She is now retired, living in the United States and writing about her life’s adventures.
