SANA’s Team Returns to Jabal Al Biddawi 6 March 2018

SANA’s team returned to Jabal Al Biddawi today on a medical and educational mission at the health dispensary of “Amani Organization”. Accompanying SANA was trainee Dr. Lara Osmani, an Ob/Gyn resident at the Lebanese University.

 

As usual, Midwife Ibtisam Seif was waiting for SANA’s team and had arranged for a packed organized clinic. The patients today were between their 5th to 6th months of pregnancy. They ranged in age between 17 and 34 years. Both Midwife Ibtisam and Dr. Lara were pretty advanced in terms of the 6-step approach and hence the concentration today was on the 3-sweep approach to properly scan the fetus for malformations and identify all key anatomic structures. It was amazing to see their skill improve with each scan and how they assisted on another in carrying out all the probe manipulations…

 

SANA thanks Mr. Dory Mansour  and Levant Alie Houses SAL and for providing all nutritional supplements today.

 

At the end of a most rewarding day, the team headed back home and plans were made for the next visit to Jabal Al Biddawi.

SANA’s Returns to Dahieh 17 January 2018

SANA’s team returned to Dahieh today for another medical/educational mission at the health dispensary of “Aamel Organization”. Accompanying SANA was Dr. Maha Ayoubi, a 3rd year Ob/Gyn resident at the Lebanese University.

 

The patients seen today were between their 5th to 8th months of pregnancy. They ranged in age between 23 and 36 years old, and 67% were on pregnancy 4 or more. Dr. Maha showed remarkable improvement in her scanning abilities as she carried out the 6-Step approach, under the guidance of SANA’s Reem S. Abu-Rustum. In addition, she was abale to obtain the majority of the anatomic planes ascertaining the presence and normal appearance of the various fetal organs. SANA redated 22% of the patients seen.

 

A special thank you to Mr. Dory Mansour and Levant Alie Houses SAL for providing all the supplements today.

 

At the end of a gratifying day, the team headed back home and plans were made for the next visit to Dahieh…
