Kristen and her husband Mark had just begun settling into their year in Gondar, Ethiopia when they learned of our cervical cancer prevention project. While she works in the Ob/Gyn Department at the University in Gondar she will be able to continue the training and mentoring of providers. She is a longtime Northwest resident who works at Swedish Medical Center in Seattle during her normal life.
Amy’s family was originally from Senegal and it was during her first visit there when she was 13 that she decided to dedicate her life towards improving the health of Senegalese people. Now that she has finished her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Johns Hopkins she is ready to pursue her dreams. Amy was a key part of our first project in Dakar and Tambacounda and we look forward to having her continue to work with us.
Nafila was born in Algeria and moved to the United States after High School. She attended medical school at the American University of Antigua and was a third year resident at the Mid-Hudson Family Medicine Residency in Kingston, NY when she traveled with Go Doc Go to Senegal. “It was an honor to help educate local healthcare providers to establish a sustainable women’s healthcare program in a region direly in need of these services. In a very short time the people of Senegal managed to captivate me with their kindness. I believe that volunteering abroad is a must; once you start you won’t want to stop!”
