Description: 

Global Health Seminar: War, Tech and Health: How medicine under fire prompted an app to improve care. Join emergency physicians Mohammed Dalwai (South Africa) and Janis Tupesis (UW-Madison) as they discuss and demonstrate the opportunities for mobile technology to improve medical care, what it takes to found a startup, and the challenges of building mobile apps to improve care in resource-limited settings.

Dalwai's experiences with Doctors Without Borders in war zones prompted him to co-found The Open Medicine Project South Africa to develop an app to ensure the most critical patients are cared for first. He and Tupesis are collaborating to develop an app to improve emergency care.

The seminar is free and open to the public. Find more information at http://ghi.wisc.edu/event/war-tech-and-health-how-medicine-under-fire-pr...
