An Edmonton-based doctor is helping save lives in Syria, from thousands of kilometres away. "If they need my help, I'm available," says Dr. Maher Saqqur, a critical care neurologist with Alberta Health Services.
CBC's Ioanna Roumeliotis talks to Saqqur about how he helps patients from afar via the internet.
