Mthatha students in UK

The students from the MSc in Health Informatics that CHIRAD are running at Walter Sisulu University in South Africa (www.chirad.org.uk/mthatha.htm) are currently on a visit to the UK. They are attending the EFMI STC 2008 in London over the next few days, and have had a variety of visits and activities over the past few days.

EFMI STC 2008 starts this evening

The EFMI Special Topic Conference on Open Source and Healthcare in Europe starts this evening (www.chirad.info/efmi_stc), with an opening ceremony and welcome reception.

CHIRAD is one of the sponsoring organisations for the event, and CHIRAD members have been active in organising it.

I hope to do some blogging from the event, here and on other blogs that I contribute to.

April 2008 must be South Africa

Graham and Peter will be in South Africa for about 3 weeks in April 2008. WE will be teaching on the MSc in Health Informatics (www.chirad.org.uk/mthatha.htm) , meeting with colleagues from SAHIA and the MRC, and adding in some holiday.
We will try to do some 'on the road' blogging, including uploading photos. As a starter, here are some photos from the January 2007 visit:
