Nurse Anne Borden
Anne Borden, a registered nurse of 29 years with Massachusetts General Hospital out of Boston, volunteered with Project HOPE at the Alluri Sitaramaraju Academy of Medical Sciences (ASRAM) Hospital in Vijayawada, India. Borden, a returning volunteer for Project HOPE, just completed her Tropical Medicine Course in neighboring Vellore, India and volunteered to spend an additional three weeks with HOPE to help build nursing capacity at ASRAM. During her service, Borden focused her efforts on medical education. She taught courses at the nursing school to both nursing students and faculty - sometimes teaching four courses per day. For the faculty education, Borden implemented the HOPE-modeled "train the trainer" approach, thus helping to build capacity in the hospital by developing nursing best practice guidelines and staff competencies. In the evenings and after hours, she began teaching Advanced Cardiac Life Support to the hospital's physicians. This was a great opportunity for the health care providers to learn to act immediately and save lives. Not only did Borden's course teach rhythm recognition, defibrillation, management of airway, and emergency drugs, but she taught providers how to work as a team, including overseeing a mega code practical session with the equipment. Surprisingly, none of the staff in the Critical Care Unit and catheter lab had ever taken the class, so it was a first for ASRAM. The physicians loved it and were thrilled to have someone teach such a helpful course. More than 21 doctors participated in the second course. We congratulate Anne Borden as the February 2013 Volunteer of the Month for her distinguished service while supporting HOPE in India!

Anne Borden, MPH, RN, is one HOPE volunteer who is teaching patients to better manage their chronic diseases.
Anne tells her students that the burden of a chronic disease, such as diabetes, may be heavy.

Patiently, Project HOPE volunteer nurse, Anne Borden, listens as an elderly lady with diabetes talks about her life.
She then talks with her, giving her advice on how to better control her disease within her environment in rural Central America. Anne will repeat this scene, over and over again, listening to and teaching each individual patient to ensure all their questions are answered and that they understand their chronic diseases. "It is very gratifying. There is a lot of individual counseling and teaching and people are very appreciative of anything you do. We get the opportunity to teach people the basic fundamentals of how to manage their chronic diseases that they are going to have all their lives," Anne says. So she continues, meeting with each patient, one-on-one, helping them understand hypertension, diabetes, the risk factor for stroke and the importance of following through on medications and more. Anne first worked with Project HOPE when her employer, Massachusetts General Hospital, sent a team of volunteers to work with HOPE in Haiti following the devastating earthquake. She says that volunteering after the earthquake really made her understand how connected every one really is. Her second volunteer mission with HOPE in Nicaragua and Panama is cementing that belief. "It is interesting that the people in these Central American countries have the same health concerns as we do in the United States," she says. "They have the same basic health problems, the same concerns, such as how they get their meds or how are you going to help them get their quality of life back." One patient in particular that sticks out in her mind is an older Nicaraguan woman, probably about 92. She was very healthy, and had her blood pressure checked. She said that she represented all the Nicaraguans who couldn't get out of their houses. "She was very graceful, very well spoken and sweet," Anne says. In addition to working with patients, Anne is also serving as HOPE's Operations Officer and Chief Nursing Officer during this portion of the Continuing Promise 2010 eight-country mission. Her leadership role makes her appreciate even more the complexity and scale of this annual humanitarian assistance and health education mission. "The Navy really has the infrastructure to pull off such a large mission that helps so many people," she says.
