Research Project Coordinator, Aga Khan University Hospital, Nairobi, Kenya in collaboration with Oxford University
A highly motivated and hardworking individual, who has recently completed INTERGROWTH 21ST Study and started a new Research study Interbio21st under Oxford University.
My excellent networking skills have provided my team with vital client leads, and my ability to develop client relationships has resulted in successful completion of intergrowth 21st study. Currently started Interbio research study under Oxford University.
The ability to communicate clearly and concisely is the key to the success in any project management. I am working on improving my communication and project management skills.
As a manager care plays a greater role in our health care system, the relationship between patients and medical staffs is becoming increasingly complex. I am currently majoring in public health care and management so that I will be able to make decisions that will optimize the benefits to the patients. These classes have helped me to better understand the relationships between patient’s health and public health as well as social condition and the health care system.
Through my undergraduate research projects, I have also explored the relationship between biomedical research and patient care. My curiosity with how cells function combined with my desire to be academically challenged have led me to devote a notable amount of my college career to research. Since my freshmen year, one of my research projects looked at challenges faced by women with cervical cancer in Kenyatta Hospital in Kenya. My nursing and public health studies have enriched and educated me, and by observing and exploring the different relationships in health care, I have gained a more comprehensive view of medicine. I believe that what I have learned from the many people and experiences over the years which will help me to become a successful RESEARCHER - sensitive to my patients needs and aware of my responsibilities to science, society, and the health care system.
I had the opportunity to present Intergrowth Research project paper at AMRN (Africa Medical Research Network symposiums).In the long run, I hope to take advantage of my research background to conduct research projects that would have practical applications in patient care.
