What role can a mobile data collection app like Magpi have in fighting Ebola in Sierra Leone and other countries? How can Magpi address prevention, contact tracing, treatment and other challenges in managing Ebola?

Dr. Joel Selanikio will join us in a free webinar on February 26 to discuss his recent three month tour in Sierra Leone treating Ebola patients. In his talk, he’ll share the challenges of electronic data collection in Ebola treatment units and detail efforts to improve data collection practices across the world with his award-winning mobile data collection software, Magpi.
