FRESH Committee

For all my RUSH friends the FRESH committee is coming to Uganda. We are planning on making a wall of workers by posting the clinic workers pictures, names, and titles on the wall. The staff seem to enjoy their job and there is good camaraderie, however, there is a higher turnover rate for clinical officers due to the higher pay and better location of government clinics. In order to combat this the clinic offers housing at the clinic. However, we have found that that staff don’t necessarily “hang out” after work. Therefore, we are making monthly “fun” days at work. So far we have plans for a movie night, a futbol game of teachers vs. health care staff, and a potluck picnic. On another note our first CME (medical education) for the clinic staff is next week on neonatal resuscitation. I will be using the Helping Babies Breathe doll and kit as a guideline. Here’s hoping all goes well!
