Title: Distance Learning Officer
I am a technologist and educator with three years of experience in adult distance learning education in the USA and Uganda; 2 years of experience in youth education, specifically environmental education and literature, in the USA; and 2 years of experience in on site adult education in the developing world. I have also worked as an advocate, editor, graphic designer and trainer in various contexts. In my current position as a Distance Learning Officer at the Infectious Disease Institute of Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda, I combine all of these skills to develop a continued medical education tool for rural healthcare workers to receive the most up to date and life saving information.
