Our Riobamba graduates.

Dr. Orlando Echeverria, our champion in Riobamba

The Elders came to help us in Riobamba the first day, here they are grading papers on the steps to the auditorium, tables were in short supply.

This is for all my nurse friends, the nurses here are very professional, they wear their hats and whites.

Some of the training equipment the hospitals will receive.

Practice station, these dolls can be used to teach intubation technique.

January 17 -20, 2011
Monday morning we were up bright and early, 5:30a.m., we had a devotional each morning before breakfast, ate and were off to the hospital. The training is from 8:30 to about 2 or 3 in the afternoon. Our main job is registration, passing out materials, entering everyone in the computer and helping with the tests. We grade the tests and enter the scores in the computer. At the completion of the training we get all the certificates ready for the graduation ceremony. I helped a little with setting up and taking down the practice stations. We had 41 participates in Ambato and 38 in Riobamba. These participants are Doctors and Nurses and we had a few students. The advanced course was taught in Riobamba and Ambato and 10 other regional Hospitals were represented at the training. At the end of the course equipment is donated to each of the Hospitals represented so that training can be provided in these hospitals as well. Each participate is asked to train 6 other people who in turn train others. It is hoped over 500 medical personnel will be trained over the next 6 months.

The exciting thing is I use NRP often at work, and it really does save little lives. You never know when you will need the training. You really are making a big difference.
