And......here we go....... HHiSS delivered another Toxicology and Snakebite first aid lecture. This time, on invitation of the Lusaka Apex medical University. Over 80 students attended the lecture about the harmful snakes in Zambia, snake toxicology and what first aid measures should be applied in case of snakebites. We are very grateful for the extended invitation for this lecture which was kick-started and organised by Dr Machi.
The Lusaka Apex Medical University (LAMU) intends to enter into a partnership with Helping Hands in Snake Safety to ensure snakebite-related short courses become a regular feature on the LAMU course curriculum. This is a great development and a step forward in Zambia's combat against the most neglected of the Highest Priority Neglected Tropical Diseases!!!
