Top of Mind: Live in America for Refugees with Dr. Abdul Nasser Kaadan

Radio Interview Dr Kaadan

Dr. Abdul Nasser Kaadan, Orthopedic Surgeon and a Syrian Visiting International Professor currently teaching at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah, was a guest on Brigham Young University's news and public affairs radio program titled "Top of Mind with Julie Rose." The interview aired on April 21, 2017.

Host Julie Rose introduced her interview with Dr. Kaadan by saying,

"We’re hearing stories about what it’s like to be an immigrant in the United States: the challenge of finding work, even when immigrants are highly educated and respected in their own countries. This scenario applies to many Syrian refugees whose country had one of the best systems of higher education in the Middle East, before it became embroiled in war and chaos"

You can listen to a podcast of the radio interview online.
