#climbforacause 2019 Mount Kilimanjaro

SadighThe first #climbforacause in 2018 raised funds necessary to build a microbiology lab at Saint Francis Naggalama Hospital in Uganda.

This year’s #climbforacause will be led by Dr. Majid Sadigh, the Christian J. Trefz Family Endowed Chair in Global Health at WCHN, and the Director of Global Health at the University of Vermont Larner College of Medicine, along with his daughters, Katrin and Mitra. They will begin their climb on July 28.

The 2019 #climbforacause will support the Nursing Division!

Nursing excellence is at the heart of exceptional patient care and advocacy, especially in a global health environment. We continue to advance opportunities for clinical education and reciprocal knowledge-sharing between nurses and nursing students at home and across the globe. Your support will enable nurses from international global health partner sites to travel to WCHN for training, research and capacity building. In turn, our nurses gain critical competencies in caring for diverse populations both at home and abroad. From skilled and compassionate patient care, teaching and outreach to superior healthcare delivery, nursing expertise enhances every aspect of our Global Health program.
