Long-time BHP supporter, Dr. Gopal Verma (dark suit) invited Alex Berland to speak to students and faculty at East-West Nursing College in Dhaka during Alex’s latest visit. It was also an opportunity to pass along textbooks donated to BHP by the BC College of Nurses and Midwives.
As the IUBAT College of Nursing is now well-established, BHP efforts have focused on developing educational resources and support for other projects, including the global Open Access work of Nurses International, the elder care program of Sajida Health Care and a rural home care program. We are still awaiting final approval for the IUBAT Masters in Public Health program that will emphasize advanced education opportunities for nurses. At the outset, we hope to recruit international faculty volunteers to teach some classes remotely.
