Congratulations to GHP alumnus Dr. Titus Ngeno and his team for their recent publication in the Annals of Global Health, entitled “Feasibility of Cardiac Rehabilitation Models in Kenya”.
Due to the global prevalence and high morbidity of cardiovascular disease, especially in Kenya, Dr. Ngeno and his team of clinician-researchers from both Duke and Moi University in Eldoret, Kenya, set out to evaluate the feasibility of cardiac rehabilitation programs in Western Kenya. Cardiac rehabilitation is effective in improving cardiovascular disease symptoms and is adaptable to many settings. However, it is under-utilized. Dr. Ngeno and his team explored the ability of rehabilitation therapies to be deployed at the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital (MTRH) in Kenya, as well as remotely by patients who live far away.
Members of the team from Moi University and MTRH include Drs. Felix Barasa, Jemimah Kamano, Edith Kwobah, and Charity Wambui. Duke team members are Dr. Titus Ngeno, Dr. Gerald Bloomfield, Drs. Joseph Egger, Peter Kussin, Nathan Thielman, and Cynthia Binanay, MA.
