Kimmie Weeks is co-owner and Senior Director of African Operations for Integrum Scientific.
Integrum was born out of the need to address the deficiencies and broaden the benefits we observed in the international response to the 2014-2016 Ebola outbreak in West Africa. During that crisis, our Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Mr. Joe Sgherza, gathered a team of individuals from multiple organizations who had the experience to be innovative and the willingness to immediately mobilize. As scientists, engineers, and infrastructure experts, they successfully pooled their collective expertise and coordinated across their organizations to develop a blueprint for the fight against Ebola and to launch the first clinical trial conducted in West Africa during the outbreak. Together, they built innovative mobile labs that successfully delivered ground-breaking research and training, saved lives, and eased suffering in the hardest-hit regions of the outbreak
