Allergy in Africa Webinars

The University of Cape Town, Division of Paediatric Allergy runs a series of lectures at the Red Cross Children’s War Memorial Hospital in Cape Town. These lectures cover issues relating to allergy and asthma, with a special focus on allergy practice in developing countries. We offer these talks via a live video feed to accommodate people who are unable to attend these lectures due to distance.

The method we use is Adobe Connect. No additional software or hardware is needed. Participants are able to hear and see the speaker and see their PowerPoint presentation as well as ‘sms’ any questions you may have. There is no cost to participate in the webinars.

Individuals can access the talks, or a group of interested parties in your hospital, university or community could arrange to meet around one computer or screen. The webinars will take place at 8:00 am South African time and are thus suited for people in Africa, Europe, and the Indian subcontinent. Participants who would like to join but cannot make the sessions live due to time zone differences will be able to view the webinars from our website.

To sign up for future correspondence about the lectures or to ask any questions please email Heidi Thomas at heidi@riversister.com

The Allergy in Africa webinars are now available as podcasts. Please click here to view list. 

As always, we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible in the lecture theatre. For those of you who can't make it, we will broadcast live via adobe connect.

A reminder with the URL details will be sent out closer to the time.

To get directions of how to sign up for this webinar live on Friday next week, or to join our mailing list for future notification of allergy related CPD activities, please email heidi@riversister.com.
