  • Global Health Radiology , Malawi June 2016

    For the month of June 2016, I will spend time at Kamuzu hospital in Malawi working on global health radiology. I am getting excited for the upcoming trip despite a little twist settling on Malawi as my destination. I caught the global health bug again at the American College of Radiology (ACR) annual conference in May 2015 during the resident and fellow section and the informal evening bar when I met several staff that are teaching or reading cases from various hospitals in East Africa. I had an offer to try out a site in Uganda that fell through, but my program director Dr. Heitkamp had helped me work out a time to get a global health month. Adam, a 4th year(now neuroradiology fellow) from Emory University had suggested that I apply for the Goldberg Reeder Global Health Grant to get some money to cover at least the ticket costs.

  • OpenMRS WorldWide Summit 2015

    Nothing gives me more pleasure than to write a year-end blog from the OpenMRS worldwide summit in Singapore in Dec 2015. My story of involvement in OpenMRS came from my final years as a medical student in Eldoret, Kenya. I was already tinkering around technology and wondered how the same could be used to manage HIV patients. As a matter of fate, Ben Wolfe was visiting Eldoret and conducting some OpenMRS classes every Friday evening that I participated in. I have to admit being the only girl in tough java made me persist and learn OpenMRS. This was in the year 2007. A few of my close friends, notably Dr. Rose Kosgei who was already traveling for specialized studies in the US was telling her networks about me. She is the first person that explained to me about health informatics as a specialty.

  • #SIIM2015

    I had a wonderful time attending the SIIM 2015 meeting in DC between 28th to 30th May 2015 after a missed chance in 2014 when i was a PGY1 resident with no time off. Two weeks after attending the ACR conference, I was moved by the ‘dorky ‘ feeling , the upbeat mood of the attendees who were not all gloomy about the bad future of radiology , but expectant to position themselves for the future of radiology where informatics is core.

    NAMING HISTORY

    There are 42 tribes in Kenya , each with an interesting history of how children are named. The Luo community for example names children based on the season and the time when the child was born. For example ‘-chieng’ refers to ‘noon time’, and thus a boy born at noon would be named Ochieng while a girl named ‘Achieng’.
