Members of the visiting UK team are Nick Naftalin OBE, FRCOG, Chair of Phi, Phi’s Director Shane Godbolt and Ania Nogal,  a member of the electronic Knowledge Access Team serving London’s health libraries.

The workshop will be held on 3 & 4 November. The first day’s topic will be Building Strong Library Associations  co-facilitated by Shane Godbolt (Director, Phi) with Nasra Gathoni , President , Association for Health Information and Libraries in Africa ( AHILA); and the second day’s  topic will be Impact of the Internet on Healthcare Information Delivery facilitated by  Ania Nogal.

We are grateful to the National Library of Medicine for additional funding support for Nasra Gathoni, whose unique role and experience will add great value to the workshop.

 Phi’s Chair, Nick says as a clinician, manager and mentor I was and still am a huge user of health information’.

The user perspective is always salutary and we look forward to having Nick with us during the event too.
