Wound Care in Kenya
This program will build upon the AMPATH collaboration with Moi University in Eldoret, Kenya where nurses have identified wound care as an urgent need. Students will work with the faculty and partner to develop wound prevention tools using locally available supplies. Student teams will identify available materials, design and test prototypes, and test for acceptability for both personal and unit-based interventions to address wound outcomes. The program will include fully-funded travel to Kenya during summer 2023.
