Between Dec. 26 and Jan. 6, Students for International Mission Service (SIMS) and the Buea Adventist Health Center in Cameroon partnered together to host a large-scale health fair on the health center campus.
Led by Jan Nick, Ph.D., associate professor in the School of Nursing, 15 students and faculty members representing the School of Medicine, School of Dentistry, School of Public Health and School of Behavioral Health traveled to Cameroon to participate in the health fair. Bill Colwell, development director of Buea Health Center, and his wife, Trixy Franke, M.D., medical director and Deferred Mission Appointee (DMA), hosted the SIMS team.
After the team’s departure, Dr. Franke posted a summary of the students' activities on the hospital blog. Read the summary at billntrixy.blogspot.com/2013/01/sims-health-fair-dec-2012.html.
