Dear Friends of EWH,

Like much of the world, the last few months have made us re-imagine the way we work and the ways in which we fulfill our mission. Thanks to hard work from Dr. Deborah Walter of the Rose Hulman Institute of Technology and from our staff - especially our Student Programs Director Ben Fleishman and our Summer Institute Manager Megan Lavery - we are excited to build new connections through a virtual program this summer. And thanks very much to you, our supporters, who have reached out to us with kind words, innovative ideas, and donations, all of which have helped us stay confident and motivated in the face of great uncertainty.

Virtual Innovation Exchange

Engineering World Health is conducting a virtual design program, bringing together groups of students from the United States and Lebanon. The 5-week course focuses on low-resource design and engineering for healthcare in an international setting. Read more about the course here.

The program is supported by the Stevens Initiative, which is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, with funding provided by the U.S. Government, and is administered by the Aspen Institute. The Stevens Initiative is also supported by the Bezos Family Foundation and the governments of Morocco and the United Arab Emirates.


Help Us Fulfill Our Mission

Although Covid-19 has made international travel impossible, EWH is determined to do what we can to fulfill our mission to inspire, educate, and empower the biomedical engineering community to improve health care delivery in low-income countries.

As the Virtual Innovation Exchange course shows, we are working hard to find new ways to accomplish our mission online.

We continue to seek more opportunities and to build new partnerships to give students meaningful instruction in equipment repair, whether they volunteer with medical supply non-profits in their communities, prepare for future travel, or take what they learn into their other design and engineering courses.

At the same time, we are expanding our BMET Library to ensure resources such as equipment manuals and troubleshooting guides are available to technicians around the globe.

If you can, please donate to Engineering World Health today. As always, we are grateful for your support - we would not be able to fulfill our mission without you. Thank you.
