Projects Abroad truly gave me an opportunity like no other. I was placed in the Eastern Regional Hospital in Koforidua. I worked in both the Pediatric and Maternity units, abs I had the opportunity to work very closely with doctors, nurses, and patients. I also participated in outreach twice a week; on these days we would make house calls and go to schools. We consistently made a house call for a woman who had a massive cellulitis, but could not afford to get treatment in the hospital. Someone went to check on her and change her dressings just about everyday, but the two days of the week we had outreach we would go as well. Then, after that we would set up a station at the school and treat kids for ringworm, and clean and bandage their wounds. One of the days I participated we treated 100 kids all of whom had more than one wound. This was truly a great experience and the staff was amazing in helping with placement or if I ever had any questions.
