PATHWAYS Leadership for Progress (www.pathwayslp.org) in conjunction with the Center for Environmental Stewardship (http://www.ces-stewardship.org) is offering a 4-6-week practicum in Ngong town (southwest of Nairobi), Kenya for Emory MPH candidates. The selected candidate will be responsible for training community health volunteers on public health topics such as nutrition, HIV/AIDS, and water/sanitation using approved manuals through a program sponsored by the local Ministry of Health. The selected candidate will also be responsible for evaluating the impact of this program. Travel in the area will be minimal as the worksite is close to the residence. Room and board will be covered for the 4-6 week duration by the sponsoring organizations. Dr. Mbaabu Mathiu of the University of Nairobi will be the onsite supervisor.
