They say two times is a charm – and boy they weren’t kidding! We’re excited to announce that ISUOG Outreach will be returning to Kumasi, Ghana on 16 November for the second phase of its development program in the region, in partnership with local NGO Women’s Health to Wealth and GE Healthcare. Led by Outreach Chair Dr. Anthony Johnson (USA), the team will consist of returning volunteer Dr. Janet Horenstein (USA) and first time volunteer Dr. Theodora Pepera-Hibbert (UK/Ghana) while empowering two local trainers, Dr. Buah Hamilton (Ghana) and Yusif Yacub (Ghana) as they progress to become local trainers in ultrasound in OB/GYN. Both Yusif and Hamilton have taken part as trainees in the past three training trips so we’re excited to see their progression to the next phase of this program, which goes to the heart of the ISUOG Outreach credo – sustainability and empowerment. ISUOG’s International Development Officer, Gesu Antonio Baez and GE Healthcare’s Tammy Lynn Anderson will also be joining the team as the program takes an exciting turn to teach the teachers and ensure long lasting impact in the region.
