Steve and Jodi Swanson

Dr. Steve Swanson works in the pediatric department at Selian Hospital and Arusha Lutheran Medical Center in Tanzania. Steve started a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit to care for desperately sick and malnourished babies from the surrounding area, many of them from families too poor to pay for treatment.

He also mentors and trains young Tanzanian doctors.

Jodi, a nurse, works with community health workers, teaches occasionally at a new local nursing college, and assists with a refeeding program for malnourished children.
