Talk by Farrah Mateen on Neurology and Technology for Low-Income Populations

If you happen to be in Copenhagen check out this talk by Farrah Mateen (MD, PhDc Massachusetts General Hospital & Harvard Medical School, Boston) about Neurology and Technology for Low-Income Populations.

The talk will take place on Monday, October 7. at 2pm.

The place is DTU, Building 324, room 030.

Abstract:

Neurological disorders, including stroke, epilepsy, dementia, and head trauma, heavily burden people in low- and middle-income countries and account for a high burden of morbidity and mortality globally. Technologies for brain disorders have lagged behind innovations for other health problems. This lecture will discuss some of the possible points of technological intervention in low-income settings, including electroencephalogram (EEG), rapid diagnostic tests, and enhanced telecommunications for education, health care provision, and research on brain disorders in least developed settings.

 

Everyone is welcome!
