Tuesday September 19th saw a group of our volunteers joining us and some of the Hilditch Engineers for our Annual Volunteer's Conference/Seminar at Calcot Manor Hotel and Spa, which was kindly offered to us as a venue free of charge by our Trustee, Richard Ball. Also present were the donors who are currently funding the Kyambogo Programme for us. The guest speaker, Anna Worm, who has experience of training BMETs in numerous Low Income countries, and is an advisor to both THET (the Tropical Health Education Trust) and the World Health Organisation, gave a marvellous presentation which looked at the whole issue of BME on a continent-wide basis, and really put our work into its true context. There were also presentations that looked at our work over the last 12 months, pointed the way ahead, and provided teaching tips and a sense of educational context for our volunteers. Many thanks to those volunteers who were able to make the journey down to Wiltshire. The ideas shared and comments offered were tremendously useful for us. Thanks also to Hilditch Group for the bar afterwards, and for the excellent evening meal enjoyed by the speakers and some of the guests.
