CONNECTING NIGERIA TO CALIFORNIA TO HELP PATIENTS

What is Telemedicine?

There are times when a doctor faces a clinical dilemma. This may be a life and death situation, or sometimes it may be something less important. Whatever the situation, it would be good if that doctor can gain access to specialist support from somewhere. Telemedicine makes this possible.
Some doctors find it difficult to keep up with training and continuing education. Telemedicine equipment provides opportunity for continuing medical education with patient-based grand rounds.

Who is behind this project?

Sebastapol Sunrise Rotary Club together with Global Offsite care have already established Telemedicine link with a number of hospitals – in the Philippines, India and Nigeria. There are currently several other hospitals expressing interest to join the network.
