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 purpose of this exercise is to foster an intellectual passion for research that will ideally result in the elimination of preventable eye conditions in Kenya.
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. We had a nice stay, thanks to Sagam Community Hospital.” Solomon Tarus, of Baringo county, agreed, saying “Definitely. It was nice being in Sagam, it is a great environment. We received a warm reception, and above all I had an unforgettable learning experience from able facilitators. I am looking forward to engaging with SCH again in the future.” SCH is proud to host such innovative forums like these and look forward to continuing to train and educate new participants to further progress in their fields.
