What types of cases do we receive at The Addis Clinic? Take a look at the breakdown from May.
In a change from the previous few months, the top needed specialty in May was Dermatology. 27% of our cases required consults from dermatologist volunteers at the Mayo Clinic and University of Pittsburgh as they advised nurses, physicians and community health workers in Ethiopia, Kenya, and Belize on the care of patients presenting with difficult to treat skin conditions. Additionally, we were excited to onboard our first pediatric ophthalmologist this month, and put him right to work on a case sent by a nurse in Ethiopia. The availability of over 22 specialties in our team of remote volunteers ensures we are able to provide expert guidance for whatever type of case is sent our way.
