A long journey through the sky, over the ocean, across the mountains, desert , bumpy roads and many other land masses will bring a small team from Dalhousie University to Ifakara in Tanzania. Drs Noni MacDonald and Bob Bortolussi have been leading a Microresearch Training program for several years with partners in East Africa. This October, they will be joined by Dr John LeBlanc, Terrilyn Chiasson and yours truly (Shawna O’Hearn) to facilitate a 2 week intensive training program.
For some information about their previous programs, take a look at their website….microresearch.ca
Over the next few weeks, I will write reflections at the end of each day (and try to gather a few guest bloggers to join me) so that we can share our discoveries, engage in global health research discussions and introduce you to our partners in Tanzania.
If we miss anything, send us questions and we will add stories and photos for you!
