YEDEA is an eight-week service-learning project in Koforidua, Ghana, created by UVa School of Medicine student and program director Emmanuel Larbi Abebrese. YEDEA develops innovative solutions for issues facing Ghanaian communities' pursuit of education and healthcare, using Design Thinking. In the healthcare program, student researchers will identify means of introducing Telemedicine services into the existing infrastructure to improve the lives of underserved and/or rural communities to receive attention for their health concerns promptly. In the education program, student researchers, guided by Elgin Cleckley (Research Assistant Professor, Architecture),will examine if Design Thinking methods can produce social entrepreneurship ideas through brainstorming sessions for 8 to 11-year-old Ghanaian children.
