ASDOH hosted a lunch in honor of a very special visitor on Tuesday, April 19, 2011. The First Lady of Tanzania, H. E. Mama Salma Kikwete, visited the ASDOH ATSU campus for a lunch and tour. The visitors included the leadership of PROJECT C.U.R.E. (http://www.projectcure.org/) a non-profit organization that provides new and lightly used medical and dental equipment to underserved developing nations.
PROJECT C.U.R.E. sponsored the First Ladyâ€™s visit, as part of their First Ladiesâ€™ program as it has done the past six years in honor of First Ladies around the world who represent the countries the organization supports.
Students at ASDOH had a chance to meet the First Lady as she toured the clinic and the simulation lab. A Tanzanian ASDOH D2 student, Imran Patel, a D2, wore traditional Tanzanian dress and offered a welcome greeting to the First Lady. Opportunities for collaboration with the dental school in Dar es Salam were discussed. It was a wonderful visit!
