Wow. What a whirlwind of a trip – and it has only just started.
I arrived in Lima on Tuesday morning and we have already signed a historic agreement with the College of Nurses of Perú to help establish at newborn resuscitation train-the-trainer program. We also re-signed our longstanding agreement with the College of Midwives of Perú and are well on our way to making great inroads in establishing a credentialing system for newborn trainers.
This morning we jumped in the van and drove the 4-plus hours to Ica to visit the Casa Girasoles and plan for a “Gravel Adventure” camp in November. On top of all of the activities described above, we have our research colleagues from Thomas Jefferson University School of Nursing and the University of Connecticut joining us in Ica on Sunday to provide a face-to-face retreat for the Center of Excellence project. Then on Tuesday we will all fly to the Casa Girasoles in Urubamba.
Oh my goodness, so much is going on. I can’t wait to post more updates. Thanks for all your support.
