SCH HOSTS SECOND EYE RESEARCH TRAINING

Posted on Aug 15 by

SCH and the African Institute for Health Transformation hosted the second installment of the eye research training sponsored by the Fred Hollows Foundation this week.

The team of nine research assistants travelled from around the country back to Sagam to continue their training. Said Maurine Adhiambo from Bongoma county, “The entire training was informative. The pretest was a challenge that better prepared me for what to expect in the field.
