Engineering World Health (EWH)<br />Vishal Varma<br />
Our Mission:<br />Mobilize the biomedical engineering community to improve the quality of health care in vulnerable communities of the developing world. <br />The Past:<br />EWH Kit Building – Great success due to all your help and participation. <br />The Now:<br />EWH Design Teams<br />The Goal of EWH Design Teams:<br /><ul><li>Design a cost effective, globally applicable medical device
Build prototype of the proposed device after design approval
Make accessible 'building-kits' for the device once EWH has approved the device for global use.</li></ul>Engineering World Health (EWH) Director: Vishal Varma<br />
Who should take part in EWH?<br />EVERYONE!<br />Regardless of year and major, you are a valuable asset to your team.<br />Graduates and Undergraduates both provide valuable input.<br />The word engineer is derived from a Latin root meaning "to create".<br />As Bioengineers, I highly encourage you to participate.<br />Where does your effort go?<br />Your work on these projects will make a difference in millions of lives around the world.<br />End result: Your device will be shipped to developing countries improving healthcare for thousands. <br />Engineering World Health (EWH) Director: Vishal Varma<br />
