Marc Simpao, MD, and his wife Kayan Lewis, PhD, collaborated with faculty and post-graduate residents and the University of Rwanda on a grant that was accepted by the Swedish International Development Agency (Sida). The grant will fund two major studies on Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) in Rwanda. One study will assess prevalence data on DVT in Rwanda, where there currently is no prevalence data on DVT, and the other will address various risk assessment models for predicting DVT/PE in Rwanda.
