Project | Since 2015
In July 2015, ITEACH visited a primary care clinic near Bogotá. In collaboration with the Fundación Santa Fe de Bogotá (FSFB), the team helped establish a cardiology consult service. ITEACH trained healthcare personnel to manage patients with hypertension and other cardiovascular conditions. We provided educational workshops for patients and family members in the local community. This collaboration has evolved into cardiovascular conferences in Bogotá once per year, and training in advanced cardiovascular techniques of Colombian cardiovascular fellows at the Yale School of Medicine’s section of Cardiovascular Medicine.
