I am an Infection Preventionist with the Clinical Quality and Performance Improvement team at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. I obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Medicine and Surgery from Makerere University in Uganda. Thereafter, I worked in primary care in both Uganda and Botswana mainly with individuals living with HIV infection. I am also a graduate from the College of Public Health at the University of Iowa where I completed a Master’s in Public Health with a focus in Epidemiology.
My goal is to improve patient outcomes by utilizing my clinical and epidemiological backgrounds, focusing on infection prevention.
