8th February 2017
This was a weekend organized by the Kopfadeyemi Fellowship, held at the Google Campus. Our WaSH and Health Project Directors attended, and formed a team with other students from a variety of technical and scientific backgrounds, taking up the challenge of tackling the issue of non-communicable diseases in Africa. By the end of the conference, they proposed a solution of a mobile health system that empowers community health workers to tackle NCDs, aiming to initially set it up to combat diabetes in Tanzania and Kenya. It was a fantastic weekend for all involved, and our Project Directors particularly enjoyed being able to meet other students and discuss a variety of ideas and solutions as part of a wider team.
