HOUSTON, Dec. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Last month, a team of physicians from the Uganda Heart Institute Ltd (UHI) visited Texas Children's Heart Center to observe best practices in pediatric cardiac care.

The Ugandan visitors received a $34,100 Vocational Training Team grant through The Rotary Foundation, which allowed them to travel to Houston to observe Texas Children's team in order to strengthen the capacity of support personnel to cardiac surgery teams based at the hospital in Kampala. The team's goal was to return to Uganda with an introduction to the skills to detect congenital heart disease in children earlier, reduce mortality during and post-surgery, as well as to better guide parents and guardians responsible for post-operative care.

Led by Dr. Daniel J. Penny, chief of cardiology at Texas Children's Hospital and section head and professor of pediatrics-cardiology at BCM, the group met with Heart Center physicians, observed patient consultations and spent time with Dr. Denton A. Cooley, world renowned heart surgeon and founder of the Texas Heart Institute.

"It was a pleasure hosting the Ugandan Heart Institute team for two weeks," said Penny. "I hope that they learned valuable lessons that they can take back to Uganda that will enhance the care their patients receive every day."
