Register for the Data Science for Health in Africa Virtual Networking Exchange on 3 May 2023!

Dear All,

You are invited to a Virtual Networking Exchange on 3 May 2023 to meet and interact with organizations working on data science and health in Africa! During this completely online event, you will learn about exciting work happening across the continent, share information about your work, and identify potential collaborators. The Networking Exchange is completely free and open to any organization working on data science and/or health in Africa.

How it works

The Virtual Networking Exchange is an informal networking event that will take place in Zoom through several rounds of breakout rooms. For one week prior to the event, participants can learn about different organizations through an interactive website. On the day of the event, participants will join a Zoom session to receive instructions about the event. They will then choose a breakout room to visit. In each breakout room, they will hear a short presentation from a featured organization and can ask questions to the presenter. Participants are welcome to move around to different Zoom rooms to learn about several organizations. After an allotted time period, the breakout rooms will close and participants will then join a new round of networking with different organizations.

How to participate

To participate, you may register as a participant or as a presenter.

  • Participants may join the event and move around between different Zoom rooms to learn about different data science and health organizations.
  • Presenters may represent their organization on the agenda for the event. They will have a Zoom breakout room for an allotted time during which they can share information about their organization and interact with participants.
    Note: The deadline to register as a presenter is 14 April 2023. There are a limited number of presenter slots available so please register as soon as possible.
