Sierra Leone

In March of 2019, our team of Shasta physicians, residents and an OB nurse from Mercy Medical Center traveled to Sierra Leone in West Africa to teach Helping Babies Breathe - a newborn resuscitation curriculum for third world countries.

The team was well received by The Bo School of Midwifery in Bo City.45 midwives received this training as well as Helping Mothers Survive / Eclampsia courses aimed at decreasing perinatal survival of both mothers and infants.

Midwives from rural Kenema District were also trained as the group traveled closer to the Liberian border.

Global Health on a humanitarian as well as an educational level is an essential element of Family Medicine training and no other specialty is as prepared to make a difference.
