Phew!!! Tomorrow will certainly be a busy, but exciting day at CURE Zambia. Not only will the Zambian National Broadcasting Corporation be featuring CURE Zambia’s successful mobile clinic program on television, but the hospital– and more specifically, the ENT & Audiology department– will be interviewed by BBC Africa!! I can’t tell you how proud and thrilled I am to have our hospital spotlighted on a major, world-class broadcasting network!
BBC Africa will be profiling CURE Zambia’s mandatory hearing testing campaign, as we are the only hospital in the entire country pushing for the development of this policy. BBC Africa will also be featuring our trusty ENT consultant surgeon, Dr. Uta Fröschl and our resident audiologist, Alfred Mwamba. In addition, they will be interviewing two patients who will tell of their experience with CURE Zambia’s ENT & Audiology staff and how early hearing testing has impacted their daily lives.
The date of the BBC Africa broadcast has not yet been set, but once I get word, I’ll keep you posted. So stay tuned…
