Latinoware Day 3

At the airport waiting
With a bit of nostalgia and sadness we finally got to the last day of Latinoware and IWEEE ...

Like it always happens in these events, the adrenaline of the previous planning and the end of it leave us with a sour taste !

The last day of Latinoware was very intense, especially for the meetings with all the people met at IWEEE 2011 and for the commitments with the press for the interviews. 

I leave you with a potpourri of "profesional " and "social" pictures.

A special acknowledgment to Joice Käfer, Cesar Brod and to the team of Latinoware that made all this possible: Joanne Candida, Michelle, Daniela Priscila de Oliveira Veronezi, Marcos Siriacos Martins and many more ...

IWEEE 2011 Europa: Momentum


Nos estamos preparando para la 3ra edición de IWEEE : Conferencia Internacional de eHealth en Economías Emergentes

Este año la Sociedad Internacional de eHealth y Telemedicina (isfteh) nos invitó para celebrar IWEEE en Luxemburgo, en el marco de Medetel durante los días 6 al 8 de Abril del presente año.

IWEEE ya está dando frutos. Como ejemplo, el gobierno de Paraguay ha comenzado a migrar sus regiones sanitarias a software libre después de la segunda edición celebrada en Foz de Iguazú, Brasil.

Como en anteriores ediciones, habrá presentaciones, discusiones y mesas redondas llevadas a cabo por un grupo multi-disciplinario que nos relatarán la realidad de sus sociedades, y posibles medidas para mejorar la educación y salud de sus pueblos.

Para mayor información del evento, así como si quieren participar en la presentación de algún paper o poster, por favor visiten la página principal de IWEEE
