“I have not really captured the multiple ways that God used the INMED Conference and Course to help the Ghana Health Team that Dr. Jennifer Wilson started and lead for so many years,” expresses Susan Fockler, Canadian pharmacist and 2014 INMED Graduate Diploma recipient.
- “INMED Helping Babies Breath training we in turn taught to local health leaders throughout northern Ghana.
- “Our INMED Service-Learning at Ghana’s Wenchi Hospital facilitated the recruitment of our Medical Director for the new Leyaatta Hospital in Carpenter, northern Ghana.
- “The medication list for our first mission was based on the one from Baptist Medical Center, INMED Service-Learning Site also in northern Ghana.
“While it wasn’t easy when the door to work in Ghana closed, God has made it very clear that my newer work in Uganda is his plan and purpose for me, as least in this season of my life and I am blessed to serve in this way. In early October I returned to northern Uganda to do some consulting work for the Pharmacy department of a large Catholic Hospital. This was the 4th time that I have been there, and the first time since the pandemic. I was very excited to return.
“I think my biggest learning from INMED is to first observe and learn why things are done the way they are… then work with the local people to make improvements. I am reminded of Romans 8:28 “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”
