Ebrima joined PRECISE/DYAD Study, MRCG as a State Enrolled Nurse (SEN) in July 2021. He has since adapted and become a reliable member of The Gambia team. Within this past year, he has contributed largely and diligently. Specifically in the Farafenni study site, working with data collection and carrying out PRECISE/DYAD clinical procedures and query resolutions. Ebrima has voluntarily gone the extra mile in providing leadership since the Assistant Nurse Coordinator (ANC) proceeded on long term sick leave.
