Volunteer to be involved in assisting organised health checks for students at The School of St Jude in Arusha, Tanzania
Many of you will have had the opportunity to help out with these checks previously and some have expressed interest in being involved. For those a bit surprised to receive this email, I’m also taking the liberty to send out to many of my friends and colleagues who I think may be interested, or know others who may be interested in being involved.
The dates have been confirmed for February 25 to March 8, 2018 and applications are now open.
See https://www.schoolofstjude.org/join-us/health-check-team.html for information and the application process.
We are particularly interested in recruiting health professionals experienced in vision assessment and hearing assessments, as well as health professionals with experience and expertise working with young people with vision impairment, cerebral palsy and other physical disabilities. In the last few years we had physiotherapists and orthopaedists that made a great impact in assisting some of the students, particularly in the classroom. Of course, doctors with experience in child health particularly GP’s and paediatricians (or registrars), as well as child health nurse practitioners are always highly valued too. Nurses provide valuable support, particularly to the local school nurses. As usual we will need some helpers, although the numbers may be less than previous years as we are hoping graduate students or the students in transition between year 10 and 11 will join the team.
For those who have been before, I hope you will consider coming along again and submitting another application.
For those that have heard about the checks or gave previously applied and would like join, we look forward to your applications!
And for those that know of people who may be interested in participating, please share with interested colleagues and friends. Thanks!
The closing date is September 30. If you can cc me in to applications sent to recruitment, that should help the logistics.
If you can decide by September that would be great, but if you need a bit more time, let me know and we will see what we can do.
