EWH's global community is always growing and changing as we connect with new people and build a stronger network of engineers and technicians around the world. We are please to welcome our newest staff members:

She worked as an OTGC in Nicaragua for Summer Institute 2014, and joined EWH in October 2014 as our Summer Institute Coordinator. She has already traveled to Guatemala to manager our first ever Winter Institute, and will be returning to Central America for Summer Institute 2015.

He graduated from Sathyabama University in India as a Biomedical Engineer in 2008 and later in 2012 he completed his Masters from City University of New York. Since joining EWH, Mr. Das has overseen the Calmette Center of Excellence's opening, and will be involved with training students there. He has been an excellent mentor to our BMET Training students.
Ung Kunthear, Kong Lyna, & Gunalan Dass, respectively
Mr. Kong, Mr. Lyna, and Mr. Dass all joined EWH's Cambodia BMET team in late 2014 as we gain more students and expand to more hospitals. Their work in the coming months will be essential to our success in training BMETs in Cambodia, as they coordinate the program and mentor students. We look forward to working with them and getting to know them.
EWH is a truly global community, inspiring, educating, and empowering the biomedical engineering community to improve health care in the developing world.
