Eleven Days in Kyiv
by Albert E. Chudley

Eleven Days in Kyiv describes Dr. Ab Chudley’s personal experiences as a Children of Chernobyl Project medical exchange professor in Kyiv, Ukraine. The visit occurred only one year after Ukraine celebrated its first anniversary after gaining its independence from the former Soviet Union in 1991. Through Dr. Chudley’s diary that recorded his encounters with colleagues, translators, support staff, Ukrainian professors, and students during the visit he captures the excitement and enthusiasm of this newly formed country. The book provides an historical glimpse of the new and emerging country as it embraces a sense of freedom and opportunity after 70 years of communist rule. Dr. Chudley documents aspects of the pediatric medical system and culture in Ukraine, and he describes specific situations in which the help from western countries could improve the delivery of medical care and medical education in Ukraine. This book will be of interest to those interested in Ukraine and its history and culture, and to professionals who have interests in international collaborations. Dr. Chudley articulates his purpose in the trip and the desire to share his knowledge and his faith, and some obstacles that seemed to limit these opportunities. This book can inform those who are interested in how Dr. Chudley’s faith can influence and interface with personal and professional circumstances in life.
