Abilene Civic Center
Come help us Honor Dr. Brett and Jill Teague for their efforts in supporting Namwianga Zonal Health Centre. The cataract surgeries that Dr. Teague performs at NZHC are life changing. Come experience the joy of hearing the stories of those who are able to see after years of impaired vision.
We will be announcing the beginning of new phase of operation at NZHC which will include the offering of Cervical Cancer Screenings. This is an exciting development that has the potential to save hundreds of lives in the Southern Province of Zambia. As a part of this announcement we will be honoring local cancer survivors and those organizations who serve and advocate for women.
Our guest speaker will be Dr. Doyin Oluwole. Dr. Oluwole is the founding executive director of the Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon initiative at the George W. Bush Institute. Dr. Oluwole has been widely published and is a sought-after public speaker on strengthening health systems. She began her career as a pediatrician and professor of pediatrics in her native Nigeria. She holds an MD with honors from the University of Lagos, and a Membership of the Royal College of Physicians (MRCP/Pediatrics) from the University of Edinburgh/Royal College of Physicians in the United Kingdom, where she is also a fellow.
The event is free but we encourage you to RSVP if possible, but if you find yourself able to join us, come anyway.
