Mike Foster R.C.S.
Mike first became involved with the Hubert-Yeargan Center in 2010 when he joined our efforts to develop a Cardiovascular Center of Excellence at Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in Eldoret, Kenya. Early on, he dedicated several weeks a year to enhance the capacity of the cardiac diagnostic lab by assisting with new diagnostic equipment acquisition and installation, training and credentialling staff, establishing work flow and process improvements and improvements in quality of care. He has been instrumental in supporting research teams utilizing echocardiographic technology and been successful in securing external funding from the American Society of Echocardiography to conduct humanitarian screening projects amongst school age children in Kenya to detect congenital and acquired heart defects. In 2019, Mike moved to Kenya to work full time with Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital to establish an echo training program.
