Training for March trip to Uganda
A training session was held in Vermont last week in preparation for the trip to Uganda in March. Brian Garra is teaching Dave Guy, a sonographer from Fletcher Allen Health Care/University of Vermont, the obstetrical ITW protocol. Dave will be one of the ITW trainers that will be teaching the nurse mid-wives from Bwindi and Bushyeni how to perform these ultrasound protocols on pregnant women that come to these clinics for antenatal visits, in an effort to improve maternal-fetal health in these rural villages of Uganda. After several training sessions in both Vermont and Maryland all of our volunteer trainers have been trained and are finishing up last minute preparations for the upcoming trip!
