First Hybrid SYL Course Launched in Latin America

SYL advisor and ALANEPE President Melvin Bonilla welcoming participants to the SYL hybrid course

On October 13, 2021, the Saving Young Lives (SYL) project launched the initial component of a hybrid course, offered for the first time, in Latin America.

In collaboration with the Latin-American Association of Paediatric Nephrology (ALANEPE), this online educational session on AKI management in low-resource settings was held shortly before ALANEPE’s annual congress.

The session included lectures by SYL Steering Committee members Brett Cullis and Mignon McCulloch, followed by an interactive case session from SYL advisors in Latin America, Guillermo Alvarez and Melvin Bonilla. The session, presented simultaneously in English and Spanish, hosted 282 participants from across Latin America.

The next component of the hybrid course will be a hands-on session planned for spring 2022 in Bogota, Colombia.
