Dear BSPR members,
We have three exciting overseas outreach opportunities to fill you in about:
1) South Africa: An opportunity to strengthen further our partnership with the South African Society of Paediatric Imaging (SASPI) through an activity, planned at different locations to the previous South African mission. This activity is scheduled to take place between the 10th and the 19th of March 2017. Please have a look at the announcement in the opportunities section and do get in touch with myself/Prof Savvas Andronikou at the earliest if you are interested.
2) Myanmar: An opportunity to collaborate with Medical Action Myanmar (MAM) in Yangon, Myanmar with the aim of delivering educational content relating to: a) ultrasound training to coincide with the procurement of new ultrasound equipment by MAM and b) plain film teaching some time after February 2017. There are as yet no set dates for this activity which is yet to be formally planned however there is an opportunity for interested parties to contact Dr Ramdas Senasi to begin a collaboration with MAM. Please note that the invitation is extended to include a radiographer/sonographer on this trip so if you do know of any interested technicians do let Dr Senasi know.
3) Myanmar: I am currently consolidating a further outreach activity in Myanmar, this time in collaboration with radiologists working in national health hospitals to take place over approximately 1 week some time in June 2017. This outreach activity will be aimed at a paediatric radiologist audience in Myanmar with educational content on CT and MRI imaging. If you are interested in learning more about this activity please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.
Three outreach opportunities over the next 5 months which we hope will interest you and which we hope will generate further strong collaborations between the BSPR outreach group and our overseas partners! If you are interested in any of the activities outlined above, please do get in touch with us at the earliest.
