I am thrilled to welcome Josh Posen to our team as 2011-2012 Ghana In Country Director. Josh will work to advance the mission of MedPLUS Connect through his on-the-ground work in Ghana. Among other things, Josh will conduct site visits at hospitals, oversee local health initiatives, and work to develop a more sustainable structure for in-country leadership.
Josh Posen holds a bachelor's degree in Psychology and a certificate in Markets and Management from Duke University. He spent a year working for the host broadcaster of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, and also worked as a Research Assistant for the Mobility Clinical Research Unit at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto, Canada. He recently completed the Goucher College Post-baccalaureate Premedical Program, and anticipates starting medical school in the fall of 2012. He previously volunteered at the Nsutaman Polyclinic in the Ashanti region of Ghana, and is excited to now have a home base in Ghana.
