Dr. Ly’s primary clinical/scholarly focus is maternal-child health, underserved populations, and global health. He also spent time in Santa Clotilde, Peru in 2016, providing outpatient care, and inpatient and emergency service in a small hospital just off the Nap River.  It had about 20 beds, an ER, and 1 operating room.  He treated patients for malaria, diarrheal disease, tuberculosis, hepatitis, wound care, and some chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes.  Dr. Ly plans to go back to Peru and hopes to take students and residents with him.
