All of the following programs were researched, developed, and delivered by Dr. Zelfand. They were taught in remote villages living in poverty and limited access to healthcare services. The goal of these workshops was to enhance the communities’ working knowledge of basic nutrition, hygiene, sanitation, and first aid to reduce the chances of illness and to help individuals better identify the warning signs that warrant making the long and costly trip to the hospital. To ensure that further community trainings could happen in her absence, Dr. Zelfand trained local NGO workers and empowerment volunteers in all course material before leaving Africa.
