Giving the Community the Power to Train Itself: Medical Education Materials for Yap Health Professionals
Yapese health professionals have been trying to increase opportunities for health education, however do not have the necessary teaching materials.
What we did to help
We realized that this was a special opportunity to promote a sustainable form of education- training of the community from within the community. We have been working with the Yap Area Health Education Center to provide needed medical text books and materials used to train the community’s health professionals. We feel fortunate to be able to help the community help itself.
