Thanks to Dr. Bernice T. Dahn, Liberia's Minister of Health and a tireless advocate for healthcare improvement, Liberia is obtaining new medical equipment and skilled human resources. As part of a comprehensive national campaign, the technicians will play a major role in Liberia's healthcare support system. They will not only install, repair and maintain modern, life-saving diagnostic and therapeutic equipment, but will act as mentors and trainers, expanding services by elevating intern skills.
"I am grateful to the MediSend Biomedical Engineering Technology School for their partnership in providing education and professional skills training to our new biomedical technicians. They will be very instrumental in rebuilding and strengthening Liberia’s healthcare system, through direct service and by implementation of our new 'internship' mentoring programs. We are looking forward to seeing them soon, and welcome their future invaluable support," says Dr. Dahn.
