As some of you may know, I have worked in various public health projects over the past several years and will continue to put my MPH to use where possible in the future. This coming year I will be involved in a program in Nicaragua that builds healthcare capacity in the rural region of San Ramon. UCSF medical students and University of Hawaii Students will be joining with the local public health clinic UCA San Ramon and the local municipal government to provide equipment and training for ambulance workers serving 32,000 people in 89 coffee farming communities. Additionally, the team will work with our local NGO contacts to develop a sustainable education program that trains community health workers in areas such as infectious disease prevention, sanitation, first aid, family planning and chronic disease management.
The project needs an additional $8,000 of funding to get off the ground- prompting me to integrate my dual interests of photography and public health for a bit of fundraising! So here’s the pitch…
For any new clients who book my services for weddings, portrait shoots, or who just want to make a donation to a wonderful cause between now and December 15th, all profits will be donated to this worthy project.
Feel free to contact me with any questions about the project, to make a donation, or to book a date between now and December 15th!
