- Sierra (OB/gyn genius) & I man the
Maternal Child Health booth at the 2010 Kenya Gala.
I have the privilege of working in Kenya through AMPATH, a partnership that Indiana University established to
revolutionize healthcare for people in some of the world's poorest
places. Indiana University partners with Moi University in Kenya to
demonstrate how global health can be improved through an academic
partnership for clinical care, education, and research. My own work
to improve HIV care for children in poor places is all done within
the context of this partnership.
While we have a lot of sad and scary news coming out of Kenya
this week, our 20+ year AMPATH partnership also has a lot of great
successes that can be celebrated. Healthcare systems changed.
Lives saved. Lots of GOOD stories.
Every 3 years, our program holds a big gala event in
Indianapolis to celebrate the work we are doing with our friends
and supporters. If anyone who reads this blog wants to attend, I
would LOVE to see you there. You can register at kenyagala.org
