My interest is in pain educational and I have spearheaded pain and pain management trainings and workshops in Kenya which have trained over five hundred healthcare workers from all the healthcare disciplines and from both the government and the private sector.

In collaboration with others, we are working on pain and regional anesthesia fellowship curriculum.
