Adizatu Seidu, a scholar of medicine in Ghana, has dedicated many volunteer hours to educating the public on various health topics. She has specifically focussed on raising awareness of maternal and neonatal health risks providing crucial information to community members that will help prevent future mortalities. She has found her audience to be very appreciative of the health information, specifically one mother who had lost her three-week-old baby due to an infection that could have been prevented.

Congratulations to her

Abel Manjimela is a scholar of nursing and midwifery in Zambia. He organized a volunteer program with fellow medical students to provide support to three understaffed local hospitals. In a country with only seven nurses per 10,000 people having additional staff in hospitals can have a significant impact on patient care.
