Helping Babies Breathe - A Neonatal Resuscitation Class

"Helping Babies Breathe" is a major humanitarian initiative of the LDS Charities. Eighty-six health professionals from all over Tanzania came together last week at Muhimbili National Hospital in Dar es Salaam to receive training for resuscitation of new born babies. After completion of the course, they received resuscitation equipment and books for use and training in their respective schools and health facilities. We had the opportunity to help the team of medical experts lead by Mary Jane McGregor, a neo-natal nurse and her husband William, along with Dr. Dennis Hughes an OB-GYN from the U.S.
