As our October 2019 trip to Malindi, Kenya is about to begin, we are working hard to prepare. We pay our own travel expenses, and our hotel and logistical support is provided by the Caris Foundation, so if you donate, 100% of your funds go to caring for our Kenyan patients and educating our East African doctor-trainees.
Here are the publications that have resulted from data gathered on our trips, so far for 2019:
