Where Technology and Bush Medicine Collide: The Phil Simon Tanzania Project

In February 2014, the Phil Simon Clinic Tanzania Project (PSCTP) returned to East Africa to continue its work for the underserved people of Northern Tanzania. Over the last 11 years, PSCTP has provided medical care, surgeries, education, infrastructure, and specialty expertise. 2014 marked the ninth trip to Northern Tanzania for the Project’s amazing group of talented physicians, nurses, social workers, laboratorians, veterinarians, carpenters, and support personnel. Please join us as Kimberly Shriner talks about working side by side with her American and Tanzanian colleagues to provide the very best care in a beautiful but resource-limited setting.

A native of Pasadena, Dr. Shriner is the founder and director of PSCTP, a nonprofit medical project associated with Huntington Memorial Hospital. Dr. Shriner is an infectious disease and HIV specialist interested in tropical medicine and global health. She received her medical degree from Case Western Reserve University, did her internal medicine residency at Huntington Memorial Hospital, and completed an infectious disease fellowship at UCLA. She returned to Huntington in 1992 as teaching faculty. She has a private practice in infectious disease and supervises the Phil Simon HIV Clinic and the Pasadena Travel Clinic.
