" I am so excited to be a part of a like minded community of students who want to drive projects that will change the world. I believe everyone deserves the right to access healthcare, and technology limitations should not limit your quality of care. This is why I have created Humanitarian Health Engineering, with an aim to reduce the technology barrier to care. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Humanitarian Hospital Engineering
Humanitarian Hospital Engineering is a project that is designed to both raise awareness and create some simple solutions for rural and developing hospitals equipment access. Within the next few months we will reach out to hospitals in rural Australia and the South Pacific to understand their equipment access challenges and to provide a visibility solution for the equipment over hospitals.
