It’s a Wrap
After six weeks, we have finally come to the last. This was definitely an amazing learning journey with many unexpected takeaways. Having the unique opportunity to work with our counterparts across the world in Kampala, learning about the bioengineering sphere in a low-resource context, interviewing the best people in the sterilization and non-profit sectors, to learning the lean launchpad model from the school of Haas — we are closing the Summer of 2021 with new skills, a new mindset, and lots of inspiration.
Our Final Presentation
We are thankful that Rhonda and Megan from Engineering World Health took out time to come to our presentations! On top of that, Tatiana and Jovanny original SurgeCare team members whom we have interviewed also came to see what we have done with their concept.
