This week is a very exciting week for Imaging the World as we introduce a rheumatic heart disease study at two of our existing clinics. Pediatric cardiologist from Children's National Hospital, Dr. Craig Sable and his team, along with Dr. DeStigter, are at Nawayango Health Center III and Kasambya Health Center III this week kicking off the project. Below are some great moments captured this week.
