The Electoral College and the School of Pharmacy & Health Sciences organized a Basic Life Support Training on March 4, 2023 in partnership with Medswipe Africa. The training, which attracted 11 students also included the participation of two USIU-Africa Alumni, Dr. Nur Said and Dr. Ashna Maru, who together with our 2nd year student Joy-Frida Kendi are now part of the Medswipe Volunteer program. In attendance were the Electoral College representative, Ashwani Hirani and two other instructors from Medswipe, Dr. Fred Mboya and Dr. Niharika Mukherjee.

The Basic Life Support (BLS) is a course that is designed to teach a variety of healthcare professionals how to recognize a number of life-threatening emergencies, how to provide CPR, how to use an AED and how to relieve choking in a safe, timely and effective manner.

Medswipe Africa is a Kenyan based organization whose goal is to empower those working in the health sector and connecting them to each other and the community. We work to achieve this through our innovative training programs. We believe that taking care of healthcare professionals' needs and offering medical education to the community goes a long way in ensuring a robust healthcare system.
