Dr. Kenyon's First 100 Days

"It has been a very busy, and fulfilling first few months leading Project HOPE. “Global health is global” so I’ve needed to see our work overseas, starting with visits to Ethiopia, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Sierra Leone, Poland, Macedonia, and Kosovo. I had a close look at our programs on HIV, TB/HIV, diabetes and hypertension, Ebola, biomedical engineering, neonatology, our support for children’s hospitals and our efforts to ease the refugee crisis in Europe.I’ve been pleased to discover, but not surprised, that Project HOPE is truly making a difference."
