Global Health Night Out: Use of Point-of-Care Ultrasound in Low-Resource Settings

location Boyer Center for Molecular Medicine | 6:30 PM-8 PM Wednesday 26 April 2017 (EDT)

Multi-disciplinary evening to discuss current topics in Global Health. Open to students, residents, faculty, and the entire Yale Community.


Global Health Night Out is back - this Wednesday April 26th at 630PM!

As always this is an opportunity for students, trainees, and faculty to mingle, discuss current topics in global health and get to know our colleagues from across campus doing interesting work! Dinner will be served.

This Wednesday we will discuss point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) as a game-changing technology for health in low-resource settings. We'll look at the challenges associated with creating distance training programs and quality assurance programs; how POCUS can be used to target resources; as well as some applications beyond OB that are life-saving and can save precious hours for those in need of emergent procedures or transport to higher levels of care.

Session leaders will be: Cristiana Baloescu (EM) and Kirsten Cooper (RAD)

Faculty Experts for the session who will share their experience around training and implementation of POCUS programs globally will be:

Frank Minja (RAD) and Chris Moore (EM) / Grace Wanjiku (EM)

Articles for the session can be located @

Feel free to share with anyone in the Yale Community you think might be interested.

YOU MUST RSVP. Space is limited and we need accurate numbers for catering.

We look forward to seeing you all this Wednesday evening.

Hani Mowafi (EM) & Tracy Rabin (IM)
