Farewell to Fellows

Posted on Jan 9 by

This past Friday, we said goodbye to two of our consultants, Dr. Revathi Ravi and Dr. Oluwakemi Adegoke. Both are Global Health Innovation and Leadership fellows within Massachusetts General Hospital’s Division of Global Health and Human Rights. Additionally, both are currently MPH candidates at the Harvard T.H Chan School of Public Health. We were so fortunate to have them work alongside our Sagam staff for the past two years, and they have both accomplished a tremendous amount throughout their time here. Dr. Oluwakemi Adegoke (“Dr. Kemi”) is an attending in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Providence St. Peter’s Hospital in Olympia, Washington. Here at Sagam Community Hospital, she served as our Obstetrics and Gynecology specialist. Dr. Kemi brought her passion for educating patients on reproductive health and family planning to improve the lives of those here in western Kenya. She ran our weekly OB-GYN outpatient clinic and served as a clinician at Kisumu Medical and Education Trust (KMET), a non-governmental organization closely affiliated with Sagam Community Hospital.   In addition to her impressive clinical work here at Sagam, Dr. Kemi...

This past week, Sagam Community Hospital completed another successful Ketamine Week, the first since the end of the country-wide healthcare strikes. SCH trained three new providers from Sagam, as well as four nurses and two doctors from Victoria Hospital in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, Canada. Throughout the week, nineteen procedures were done in total, to support the training of the providers. This included an emergency caesarian section on Monday, starting off the week on an exciting note!
