International Breakfast seminar in Soho: New and emerging technologies

“The challenges of NCDs demand a new cadre of health professionals who can instil the passion, innovation and commitment into prevention of key risks and better management of the diseases themselves. The Young Professionals Chronic Disease Network has the potential to do just that, and deserves the widest and most urgent support.”


C3 Collaborating for Health invites you to attend the International Breakfast Seminar, New and emerging technologies: the power of the next generation in global health given by Dr Alessandro Demaio, PhD fellow in global health at University of Copenhagen.

The seminar will take place on Tuesday 28 May at the House of St Barnabas in Soho.

See a list of C3's International breakfast seminars.

Dr Alessandro Demaio is a director of the global steering committee at Young Professionals Chronic Disease Network and founder of www.ncdfree.org, a global initiative dedicated to building the narrative around non-communicable diseases (NCDs) by highlighting the work of young change-makers from developing countries. Alessandro will be talking about the power of social media in the advancement of global health. If the problems that have been created by past generations are to be solved, then a new and meaningful dialogue must take place, one that harvests established knowledge and translates it into a meaningful conversation for future generations in this new wave of action.

Alessandro trained and worked as a medical doctor in Australia. In 2010 he began a PhD fellowship in global health with the University of Copenhagen. His primary research project was based in Mongolia, working with the Ministry of Health, UN and other national and international partners to provide an epidemiological evidence-base for current and future public health and policy responses to the growing burden of NCDs. Later this year he will join the Harvard Medical School as a research fellow, where he will lead NCDFREE.

The seminar will be held at the House of St Barnabas, 1 Greek Street, Soho, London, W1D 4NQ, on Tuesday 28 May 2013, from 8.30am – 10.00am. Breakfast is available from 8.00am. The seminar will be chaired by C3 board member Richard Smith. I very much hope that you will join us.
