Dr. Elly Mwanga
Colleagues in Tanzania
HDr.Dr. Mwanga works in Same, a region near Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. He understands that there are many barriers to providing care to his patients. There are many needs, but mostly what is needed is knowledge. Physicians and health care practitioners seek colleagues to discuss care and cases. Patients and the larger community has many needs.
We are planning to return to this region in June 2019 to identify gaps in knowledge and to teach and work beside our Tanzanian colleagues to strengthen care efforts to more rural communities.
If you are a medical care provider and wish to join this group, contact Dr. Steele
