ABOUT US

Since opening our doors in 1990, the Woodbridge Dermatology and Laser Centre has provided excellent, up-to-the-minute medical care and a caring approach that ensures you are always fully informed and completely comfortable.

This summer, I joined a medical team to do some dermatology training at Baraka Hospital in Narok, Kenya.

I volunteered  through “Me to We”, and this project was  called “We Medical Trips Dermatology program”.

I was last in Kenya in 2012 and it was wonderful to return to see the ongoing improvements. The clinic has now become a hospital, and WE College has now been established to provide not only a nursing, but soon a medical school.

I worked with the local health care providers in the hospital clinic, helping with diagnosis and treatment of common and some unusual skin diseases.

I was also invited to give lectures in the new We College to the first year nursing class as well as to the current hospital staff. The lecture facilities were incredible and I believe sharing medical knowledge was an important part of this trip.

I also brought dozens of laminated teaching aids to be used by the healthcare workers as they continue to provide care to their community. Some patients came as far as 300 kms to get help with their skin conditions.

I also provided a framework for the pharmacy on essential dermatological preparations needed as recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO).

It was lovely to meet up with old friends, including Jackson and Wilson, 2 Maasai Warriors who work with Me to We in Kenya.It was also wonderful to meet new friends there, all working so very hard to help the people in their community.

This was a very inspiring trip and I feel very fortunate to have been part of this trip.
