      ABOUT THE COVER
During a Maymester trip with the Humanitarian Engineering and Social Entrepreneurship (HESE) program, nuclear engineering student, Misael Carlos Vera, spoke with locals about their health care needs as part of his research for the group venture, MoraSine. This venture is working with health care partners in Kisumu, Kenya, to learn about current processes and availability of blood test results in their effort to improve accessibility and affordability of testing to all. Their proposed device – a smart phone tool that takes a complete blood count – could help rural health care facilities take more preventative medical action when abnormalities appear.
