Christina works on the development and clinical validation of a low-power, easy to use syringe pump as a Global Health Fellow with Rice 360°. She developed a passion for global health while interning with Rice 360° at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in 2015. After graduation, she worked on an 18-month validation study of the syringe pump being used to deliver medication to women with pre-eclampsia and eclampsia at QECH. During the study, she trained nurses to use, repair, and maintain the pump, and managed clinical data. She is currently making the device easy to use by clinical staff, easy to repair and maintain by local biomedical technicians and expanding usage to neonates. Her goal is to focus on public health so that strong policies can be made concerning medical equipment management.
