Clinton has been a nurse since 2007. After practicing bedside nursing, he decided to transition to nursing education to increase impact. He received an MS in Nursing Education and now teaches Pharmacology and Tropical and Communicable Diseases at the Winifred J. Harley School of Nursing’s Campus in Ganta, Liberia.
Solomon has wanted to work in the medical field since adolescence. After receiving a scholarship, he attended nursing school and went on to become a bedside pediatric nurse, where he saw many cases of the kind of stomach infection his initiative is attempting to address. Solomon is now a clinical instructor in medical-surgical nursing and a lecturer in Community Health at the the Winifred J. Harley School of Nursing’s Campus in Ganta, Liberia.
Adolphus is a graduate of the Winifred J. Harley School of nursing and now works at Ganta United Methodist University. He first joined Nursing for All in Fall 2014 to run an initiative educating members of the rural communities around Ganta about Ebola.
Hand Hygiene in Ganta
Clinton and Solomon together installed a new water system at the Tufiae Foundation’s Child-Care School, the preschool in Ganta, Liberia, which Clinton’s children attend. They also provided students, faculty and staff with information about proper hand hygiene and good preparation. The principal of the Tufiae School stated that absences due to illness have dropped since Clinton and Solomon began their initiative. Since the Trufiae School, Clinton, Solomon and Adolphus have provided the same programming and materials for over one dozen local schools in Ganta.
