We awarded 15 Volunteer Service Awards this spring; we are introducing 2 or 3 of them each week. Greg Klazura is volunteering from early May through June, 2015, with Global Emergency Care Collaborative (GECC) as a Research Assistant at GECC’s emergency care facility in Nyakibale Hospital, in a rural section of southwestern Uganda. Greg left on this trip literally days after completing his 1st year of medical school. His principal duties involve collecting patient data as part of GECC’s on-going self-evaluation and self-efficacy effort. GECC’s innovative program is centered on task shifting. There is an extreme shortage of doctors in rural Uganda, and before GECC, the concept of an emergency room did not exist. The innovative GECC program of training nurses to be Emergency Care Professionals has had a major impact on improving the outcomes of patients. Emily Huang is a UCLA student who will be spending part of her summer in rural Tanzania working with Support for International Change (SIC). As an international SIC volunteer, Emily will be partners with a Tanzanian volunteer and will live with a host family in the community she is assigned to work in. Their primary responsibilities will be to develop HIV/AIDS prevention awareness campaigns, start peer education programs in the community, and encourage community members to get tested.
