'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Allegheny General Hospital added a third transplant surgeon to join its growing transplant program, officials announced Thursday.

Dr. Akhtar S. Khan comes from the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, where he was director of the kidney and pancreas transplant program and assistant professor of surgery at Penn State College of Medicine since 2005.

Prior to that, he was an attending transplant surgeon at the University of Pittsburgh's Thomas E. Starzl Transplantation Institute.

Khan will join the abdominal transplant surgical team of Drs. Ngoc Thai and Kusum Tom. The hospital has been a center for organ transplantation since 1987 and began performing liver transplants in November 2007.
