Beyond Ebola: Other INMED Grads In Action
August 1st, 2014 by INMED
We continue to follow the progress of INMED Graduate Kent Brantly in his personal battle against Ebola infection. His courage and devotion is hearteningly common among INMED Graduates. Susan Fockler, pharmacist, and Jennifer Wilson, family physician, are two additional INMED Grads who, like Brantly, have also invested heavily on behalf of the citizens of West Africa. Susan and Jennifer earner the INMED Diploma in International Medicine & Public Health, and reinforced their skills with training in Helping Babies Breathe – a newborn resuscitation program designed for very low resource communities. They next networked with 49 marginalized villages in north Kintampo and south Bole districts of Ghana to establish prenatal and neonatal home visit system for pregnant women and infants, and to equip birth attendants in the project area to provide low-resource antenatal care and infant resuscitation. Be encouraged by their recent Training Report, and watch for more news of INMED Grads in action.
