I wondered if I could juggle between work, family life, and study – I’m glad I decided to take this 100% online program. Based on my experience I can attest that taking this course was one of my best decisi ons. I gained added skills, knowledge, and a positive attitude, from the ren owned international and Kenyan instructors that presented an interesting cur riculum that is very relevant to the Kenyan healthcare scenario. I received valuable guidance to help advance my medical career in Kenya. Another big ad vantage for me was the opportunity to network with like-minded colleagues fr om HeSMA and to establish new mentoring relationships. This Leadership cours e helped me realize that: ’Vision without action is merely a dream; Ac tion without vision just passes the time; Vision with action can change the world’ (quote by Joel Barker). I hope you will consider taking the LMG courses offered by NSU HeSMA program.”  -- Dr. Jedidah Wange chi, MBChB, Medical Officer, Kenya Ministry of Health, Huruma County Hospita l, Uasin Gishu County, Kenya
