Thank you for those who came out to our EWH Summer Institute Info Session on Thursday November 26th, 2015. The event was a success!
Students participated in our short interactive AIDS info session and questionnaire as a part of University of Toronto’s AIDS Awareness Week and prizes were given out to our knowledgeable participants!
Sandra gave a presentation introducing Engineering World Health and the Summer Institute Program for our members. If you are interested in a hands-on engineering experience in Rwanda, Nicaragua or Tanzania, more details are available here: http://www.ewh.org/apply-now.

After the introduction, Justina, our 2015 Summer Institute Participant, gave a presentation on her experience in Rwanda as a biomedical technician. Justina showed her work in the hospital during the summer and went through five case studies of equipment repair with the students to elaborate on how the program gave her a great opportunity to practice her troubleshooting and problem solving skills.
