Dr. Patricia Hinchberger, director of the master’s entry-level professional nursing program at California
State University, Dominguez Hills, participated in a humanitarian mission to Africa last fall led by the Worldwide
Network for Gender Empowerment at Fielding Graduate University in Santa Barbara. The organization, which
Hinchberger has been a core member of since 2007, visited villages in Kenya, including Kibera, the second largest
urban slum in Africa.
