Textbook Fundraiser for Black Lion Hospital Dept. of Pediatrics

ALIF is engaging in an initiative to purchase pertinent textbooks for medical students and residents of Black Lion Hospital’s Department of Pediatrics. On Friday, February 23rd ALIF will be hosting a fundraising event at Duke City located in Washington D.C. to secure the funds to purchase the following textbooks: Nelson’s Textbook of Pediatrics 17th edition and Neonatology Textbook

Location:
Duke City
1208 U st NW
(bet: 12st & 13st)
10PM-Until
$10 at the Door
The following is a letter written by Dr. Abdulrahman:
Books for Black Lion Hospital Department of Pediatrics
This initiative is the result of seeing the need for textbooks after doing a rotation as a graduated medical student at Black Lion Hospital in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Black Lion Hospital is the only government owned tertiary care center serving not only the heavy populated capital city Addis Ababa, but also persons who walk miles from the rural areas to seek health care. While the hospital is a teaching center, the library holds very few up-to-date textbooks that medical students and residents need to read about their patient’s diseases. Although, there are many issues that need to be addressed to improve health care in Ethiopia, one way to make a difference is to provide newer edition textbooks for medical students and residents. It is my belief that it is important to support the physicians in Ethiopia as they tackle the very difficult task of working with minimal resources. Since my visit in 2004, I have kept in touch with the Dean of Medical School, pediatric residents whom I worked with and medical students that are active in the Ethiopian Medical Student Association (EMSA). They have confirmed what books are desperately needed. I hope that this is the beginning of a life-long collaboration with this teaching hospital in Ethiopia.

Thanks for your support,

Dr AbdulRahman: I am working on a library grant proposal for a project to be underwritten by a major medicine/science publisher.
One possibility is to help to make available online access to the e-journals Neurosurgery and Journal of Neurosurgery. Another approach is to augment TeleMed efforts under taken in the past by Black Lion Hospital and Addis Ababa University. The pilot projects were never fully implemented. I solicit your advice and invite your collaboration. The deadline is end September 2007. Please refer to my blog at http://learnyourletters.blogspot.com and also to Google for pertinent information regarding me.

Kind Regards,

But finally I bring about this area selling them someone is concerned half price. I in reality love those [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]prada sneakers[/url].

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!
