Far eastern hospitalBy BBN Staff: Two members of Karl Heusner Memorial Hospitals’ (KHMH) staff, Dr. Glenford Jones and Michelle Cassimiro, as well as two from La Loma Luz Hospital in Santa Elena, Dr. Marvin Camal and Dieudonne Tiemula, will be leaving the country on Monday, June 13th.

These four professionals were selected to participate in a two month training as part of the “Renal Failure Prevention Project” which was signed by Belize and Taiwan back in February and will receive extensive training in treating kidney disease.

The training will also teach the link between hypertension, diabetes and kidney failure since the obesity rate in Belize is over 60 percent, which can contribute to chronic renal failure.

Our four representatives will be expected to train other medical personnel in Belize upon their return from New Taipei City, Taiwan, on August 12th.
