E. Brian Doberstyn (c')
Brian Doberstyn (C'63) writes, "After 20 years as a medical officer in the Army (I was drafted in 1971) I overlapped for 12 years with the World Health Organization as a tropical diseases specialist and regional director of communicable diseases. I retired in Chiang Mai in northern Thailand. My sister and I have established a non-profit aimed at improving access to education for underprivileged children and young people here and in the Thailand-Burma border area. We focus on the so-called 'hill tribes' living in remote isolated areas, and on children with intellectual disabilities and learning disorders. (My sister, who graduated from Dunbarton) was the owner and director of the Montessori School of Washington for 27 years). We also provide university scholarships for underprivileged young people -- currently 18 of them." More info can be found on
