Eben Armstrong (center) is a Biomedical engineer who works for MedShare International in Atlanta. He checks and repairs equipment before it is sent around the world. MedShare has sent more than 800 containers of medical equipment and supplies to 82 countries since they started 14 years ago. They want to keep the equipment working too, so Eben is conducting a three day workshop at Hospitalito Atitlán. Two repairmen from the National Hospital in, Sololá are participating, a technician from Retaluehu, Hospitalito’s electricians and nursing staff. Everyone is amazed with what they are learning.
