IHE alumna Elizabeth Simonetti served as a pharmacist in a medical dispensary in Togo, West Africa. Her role at the clinic was to help the medical staff optimize therapy. “The biggest service I instituted was reconstituting oral antibiotics with distilled water. . . . Most of the patients had no access to clean, filtered water, so I created a system where we used distilled water created in our laboratory to reconstitute the antibiotic powder” explains Simonetti.

She is the founder of the non-profit Assi le Assime: The Togo Development Partnership. Assi le Assime promotes economic development and partnerships to provide clean water, crop production, and farm management.

Her consulting company, Oak Hill Consulting, LLC focuses on providing strategic planning and communications, fundraising, and team development to nonprofit organizations.
