Dr. Verghese travels every year to remote locations in Northeast India, the border of China and India, Myanmar, the slums of Kolkata, Mumbai and other regions where people suffer from starvation, malnutrition, homelessness and numerous diseases. These maladies include mosquito-borne illnesses such as Zika, Dengue, Malaria, West Nile Virus, Chikungunya, Filariasis and a long list of others.
