If I can bridge cultural gaps and make an impact in healthcare, so can you – let me show you the way!

I'm Dr. Allyson Crain and my expertise is rooted at the intersection of global health, education, and clinical practice. My journey began in the military as a Pashto interpreter, where I developed a deep understanding of culturally sensitive care across diverse populations. Following my military service, I embraced various roles in healthcare, further honing my skills and knowledge in various clinical and academic settings.

Committed to the cause of compassionate care, I have integrated my experiences into a comprehensive virtual course, designed to enhance the capabilities of healthcare professionals in caring for Afghan refugees.
