Naishorua graduates Med School

Naishorua OlDumu graduated from Clinical Officer Medical School last week. The road to this day has been long and difficult for Naishorua. She came to me 17 years ago ready to enter grade one. At the mission she was able to attend school and to get medical attention. Her kind of diabetes has required insulin injections and a special diet for all these years. She stuck it out, and after 7 years of primary school, 4 of secondary school, 2 of junior college and 3 of medical school, she will now begin her work as a clinical Officer in Maasai County. A clinical officer here in Tanzania does most of the things an MD does, barring open heart surgery and a number of other small differences.
