Amanda Croxton, daughter of Tom and Vikki Ashcraft, spoke about her experiences in Tanzania. Amanda is a medical student at Des Moines University, and will soon graduate and start a residency in Pediatric Neurology at Riley Children’s Hospital in Indiana. She traveled to Tanzania with Outreach on a pediatric medical mission where the team ran a pediatric clinic for 3 weeks. She shared pictures of the facilities as well as some of her patients, including newborns. She told of learning how to communicate without much knowledge of the local language in order to triage and provide medical care for diagnosis of Tuberculosis, HIV, malnutrition, worms, Trachoma, vitamin deficiencies and anemia. She also told about the care provided to ease the death of a child with HIV, TB, and malnutrition.
Amanda expressed her appreciation to our Littleton Foundation for helping provide financial support for supplies for the Outreach Medical mission.
