Dominica

Dr. Lupeika and Dr. McMullin traveled with 4 residents and a respiratory therapist to the Caribbean island of Dominica. Home to Ross University, Dominica has two hospitals and several clinics in place. The College of Nursing and Midwifery in Roseau provided 75 learners for the Helping Babies Breathe (HBB) curriculum sponsored by the AAP and WHO. Ross students were also invited to learn and assist.

Participant travelers were trained as facilitators and trained their own students during the four days of classwork. Learners received a certification of proficiency in HBB. Great friendships were established and there was time to sightsee. Thanks to all who participated!
