Pediatric Residents Help Children With AIDS in Africa

(Oct 20, 2008)

Several residents and graduates of the Hospital's Pediatric Residency program have volunteered their time to care for children in Malawi, the epicenter of the AIDS pandemic in sub-Saharan, Africa. Drs. Kebba Jobarteh, Maria Kim, Eric McCollum, Anjalee Dave, Omalara Thomas, and Saeed Ahmed participated in the Baylor International Pediatric AIDS Initiative, and several of the doctors are featured in the PBS Online NewsHour with Jim Lehrer.

The Baylor International Pediatric AIDS Initiative offers a scholars program designed to provide an international infectious disease learning opportunity for young health professionals (medical students, residents, or Infectious Disease fellows). Scholars receive fully paid travel and housing to support a one-month elective experience at one of BIPAI's HIV/AIDS Children's Clinical Centers of Excellence located in Botswana, Burkina Faso, Lesotho, Malawi, Swaziland, and Uganda.

Featured in the PBS report are Drs. Ahmed and McCollum, who are currently residents in the Hospital's Pediatric Residency program, and Dr. Thomas, who competed her residency and is now on staff.
