This fall, WPP medical volunteer Dr. Colleen Claassen, neonatologist and Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Saint Louis University, headed to the island of Dominica to train local NICU nurses. These incredible professionals have devoted their lives to caring for such a vulnerable group of tiny humans, and we couldn’t be more thankful for their hard work and dedication!

NICU Nurse Appreciation Day happened to fall on one of the training days, so Dr. Claassen and Dr. David surprised the nurses with sweet treats to thank them. Dr. Claassen was coincidently seated next to the country’s Minister of Health on her flight home, so they snapped a selfie together! WPP is grateful to Rotary International, Rotary Forest Park and Rotary of West Barbados for supporting our NICU training initiatives throughout the Eastern Caribbean.
