Attend meetings and joint chapter activities – Chapters may attend international or national conferences and organize visits between Chapters to host joint events. Individual chapters often host invited speakers, hold professional development activities and conferences, form committees for various projects, and much more!
Build EWH Kits – Chapter members learn engineering concepts and hands-on skills while supporting EWH BMET training. Completed Kits will be used for training in EWH’s BMET programs in countries around the world.
Organize training events– Beyond Kit builds, EWH chapters can engage in the basics of medical device repair and preparation required for responsible equipment donation.
Evaluate and Repair Equipment – Chapters form partnership to prepare medical equipment for service in the developing world.
Design novel technology – Chapter members can design specialized tools and equipment that EWH could manufacture for use in developing countries. We also invite active chapters to participate in our annual Design Competition, which gives students the opportunity to design solutions to global health challenges and compete for a cash prize.
Work on other EWH projects: Chapter members find numerous other ways to help EWH and our mission to educate and inspire others, including teaching material development, translation assistance, and much, much more!
Teach STEM programs with local schools – Finally, Chapters can volunteer to teach STEM curricula and work with elementary, middle, or high school students. Curricula teach a number of different engineering and science concepts with a focus on the needs of the developing world. If you have questions about chapter activities, contact us!
