A Seattle-based nonprofit is helping save lives in Kenya and elsewhere with highly realistic training sessions that prepare health-care workers to manage a childbirth emergency. PRONTO is directed by Affiliate Associate Professor Dilys Walker, and is the subject of a Seattle Times article by MPH student Paul Nevin.

The article, "Seattle group’s training program saves lives of moms and babies in Kenya," was published on the front page on April 25, 2015 and features vivid photos of clinics and settings in Kenya. Nevin was awarded the Pulitzer International Reporting Fellowship through the Department's annual travel awards for students and trainees, allowing him to travel to Kenya. He will graduate with his MPH in June.
