Dana Johnson in Ndola, Zambia
As co-founder of the International Adoption Clinic, Dr. Johnson has always prioritized advocacy as an integral part of the work of the Clinic.
From June 7-21, 2013, he traveled with a group of students and chaperones from Visitation High School on their annual visit to the Fatima Girls School and Dominican Convent in Ndola, Zambia, to provide support for the Sisters' medical services and orphanage.
The students participated daily in the clinic and medical outreach, as well as orphanage caregiving activities. Physical growth data were collected on over 400 children in the various programs provided by the Sisters in order to determine the need for additional intervention programs.
Growth data is collected on children served by Dominican programs, to help inform on the best way to provide services for these children in the future
