Staff from the Nursing Department working with Final Year Nursing students and staff from Johns Hopkins University successfully carried out community outreaches in Katanga and Kazo, sensitizing the community about risk factors for Hypertension. Hypertension is increasingly causing high burden of disease among the Ugandan community.

Meanwhile staff and students in the department participated in the World Rabies Day on 28th September 2010 in Kiruhura and Kasese districts, in conjunction with the School of Public Health and Faculty of Veterinary Medicine.
