Bobby Caina Calvan

Bobby Caina Calvan was a Bringing Home the World Fellow in 2011. 

Bobby Caina Calvan, a Boston Globe Washington, D.C.-based reporter , examined tribal medicine in Laos and how traditional beliefs are changing the way the California health-care system treats medical problems in the large Indochinese immigrant community. In addition to his fellowship story on tribal medicine, when Bobby arrived in Laos he decided to also pursue a story about an estimated 80 million unexploded bombs scattered around Laos left behind from the Vietnam War. The Center for Public Integrity published the story, “Decades after war, millions of unexploded U.S. bombs haunt Laos.”
