Engineering World Health

The Engineering World Health's (EWH) mission is to inspire and mobilize the biomedical engineering community to improve the quality of health care in vulnerable communities of the developing world. They achieve this mission through innovation and effective alliances with great partners. The Texas A&M chapter focuses on two main objectives: (1) developing new, low-cost devices for developing countries through sponsorship of senior design teams and research teams within the organization; and (2) building “kits” – low-cost devices that have been developed by EWH chapters to be donated to the developing countries. The chapter meets at least once per month.
