Summer Educational Collaborations

This summer, we explored educational collaborations with two hospitals in Uganda: CoRSU Rehabilitation Hospital and Bishop Asili Hospital in Lowero!

We were delighted to meet plastic surgeon Dr. Galiwango of CoRSU, as well as two of his residents from Uganda and Niger, to explore ways that ConnectMed could support and enhance their ongoing learning and training. 

Partnering with Just Like My Child Foundation, we also met the wonderful Sister Ernestine of Bishop Asili Hospital to discuss approaches to support the local demand for gynecological fistula repair. 

We also got to know the wonderful staff of Just Like My Child Foundation, who work tirelessly to empower girls to stay in school and honor their bodies, as well as some of the girls supported by Just Like My Child scholarships.

More to come on this collaboration soon!
