Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation’s own Dr. Chelsia Bhatti will launch her medical blog!  In our efforts to help educate the general public on the practice of female genital mutilation, we will have a blog on our website for the first time.  It is Dr. Bhatti’s hope that her medical knowledge will help shed light on the practice of FGM, and empower women and girls through her educational blog.

Dr. Chelsia Bhatti is a native of Vancouver, Canada. She graduated as a physician from Kasturba Medical College in India, and has made her home in the United States where she continues her medical career. Dr. Bhatti holds a special interest in the welfare and advocacy of women and children. She is currently the Medical Advisor and Secretary of Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation Board of Directors.  She believes in utilizing her skills to bring awareness to gender based violence and most importantly bring education and empowerment to women.

We will provide you will additional information on the launch date of the blog in next week’s edition!
