Doctor Lends Helping Hand to North Korea

Steve Price’s hands have been shaken by Sheik Zayed of Dubai, one of the richest men in the world. A high honor, perhaps, but Price has a far loftier mission for those hands.
Since 1997 this family doctor who formerly had a practice in Hamilton, Massachusetts, has been volunteering his time to aid victims of natural and manmade disasters around the world. He’s been to Congo during a civil war and New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina. Now he’s set his sights on one of the most repressive societies in the world, North Korea.
