BLOCKCHAIN IN HEALTH AND MEDICINE

Hundreds of doctors in Kenya have expressed interest in special seminar on blockchain in medicine. We believe it is critical to address this matter in support of Kenya Medical Association to respond to the needs of its members.

We have  created a September Seminar on Blockchain in Health and Medicine.

The Seminar on blockchain is intercalated in a wider event jointly created with Crown Women Rising (see details here)

Come, listen, gain hands-on experience in a breaking field of computer science. Learn what is blockchain, and how it intersects with the field of medicine.
