Day 2 - Visit to Makerere

We're digging right into our project.  This is a collaboration between Drexel University in Philadelphia and Makerere University in Kampala.  Makerere is one of the oldest and largest universities in Africa, with an enrollment of about 50,000 students.

This morning we had an official meeting with deans and department heads at Makerere's School of Health Sciences (their medical school).

Tomorrow, several members of our medical team will hold meetings with departments at Makerere to discuss specifics of our maternal and child health care project.  Other members of our team will begin the training in the two programs - "Helping Mothers Survive" and "Helping Babies Breath".
