Dr. Hubert has fostered a medical mission relationship with surgeons from Almaty, Kazakhstan. He has both visited that country and hosted some of their surgeons here in Richmond in order to share medical ideas and expertise, and to improve the lives of patients in need. This all started when Dr. Hubert met a young girl who was being cared for my an American, half way around the work in Kazakhstan. The girl had been abandoned by her parents because of multiple birth defects. Although she was vibrant and outgoing, she had not received the surgery she needed while living in the orphanage there. Through donations, she was able to travel to Richmond, and Dr. Hubert was one of the surgeons who helped treat her birth defects.
