Health Care Staff
Dr. Haris Macris looks after the health care needs of the Eagles Wings children, the EWCV staff, and people from the neighbouring community as well. He serves on a volunteer basis.
The ailments he most frequently treats are coughs, flue, headaches, and malaria. He also cares for adults with heartburn, musculoskeletal pain, and hypertension. In addition, Dr. Macris counsels select patients and shares the gospel with them.
As needed, Dr. Macris sends patients out for lab work, x-rays, ultrasounds, and dental care. He also refers patients to specialists or to hospitals in severe cases or when their medical needs lie outside the scope of the clinic.
Dr. Macris is a General Practitioner with some specialized training in Family Medicine. He studied medicine at the University of Bologna, Italy and did a partial residency in Family Medicine in Michigan, USA. Dr. Macris resides in Masaka with his wife, Maria, and four of their six children. Their eldest two children are continuing their studies in the United States.
A registered nurse, Norah, works at the clinic five days a week. Her duties include opening and closing the clinic, assisting Dr. Macris and translating for him, seeing and treating patients, cleaning the clinic, and tracking inventory.
