“I am brimming with gratitude for having had the opportunity to work with the Rwanda International Institute of Ophthalmology. The incredible mentorship from Dr. Mathenge and Dr. Nkurikiye, as well as the opportunities for growth and creativity have played an integral role in shaping both my academic and professional endeavours.”

– Siobhan Lazenby, McGill University
