Phil Simon Clinic’s Tanzania Project Departs for 11th Trip to Africa

Members of the Phil Simon Clinic Tanzania Project team departed for their 11th trip to Africa on Saturday. Dr. Kimberly Shriner, director of the Phil Simon Clinic, and a team of 60 volunteers will provide clinical care, education, psychosocial support and infrastructure assistance in Arusha, Tanzania.
Since their first trip in 2002, more than 120 Huntington Hospital employees and physicians have made the journey — providing basic health care, medication, HIV and anti-retroviral education, as well as manpower and support to the impoverished region.
The volunteers, who generously donate their time, energy, money and resources to participate, include medical personnel, social workers, microbiologists, kinesiologists, pharmacists, veterinarians and more.
