Dr. Koning, a neurologist, saw a need 10 years ago after traveling in Ethiopia. He donated time to perform surgeries on children with spina bifida. He then created a foundation to help eradicate spina bifida through getting Vitamin B to pregnant mothers. With addition of Vitamin B in salt in their diets, spina bifida can be drastically reduced, thus reducing the needs for surgery.
His presentation will be on his 10 year journey, working with Rotary, CDC, government of Ethiopia and others. We will record the presentation for others who aren’t able to attend at noon.
