DGHI Director Chris Plowe and Chancellor Eugene Washington visit Eldoret


We were delighted to host Chris Plowe (DGHI Director), Eugene Washington (Chancellor), Chris Tobias (DGHI Director of Finance and Operations) and Jamie Mills (Grants and Contracts Manager) to Eldoret this week! We were able to introduce them to the wide range of collaborations and initiatives in Eldoret and most importantly introduce them to our partners here at Moi University. They were able to visit the Cardiac Care Unit at Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital, a group of peer counsellors working with Eve Puffer’s team, and visit our community-based cohort in Webuye, Kenya.
