Back from Tamale

We were given the opportunity to make a presentation at the 51st annual general conference of the Ghana Medical Association (GMA), which took place in Tamale, the Northern Regional capital from 4th to 9th November.
The GMA graciously gave us accommodation and allowed us free participation in the conference.
Our presentation was a 10-minute documentary film on ‘autoimmunity’, produced with information from the American Autoimmune-Related Diseases Association (AARDA).
The doctors received it well and noted that there is the need for medical students to be encouraged to specialize in immunology and rheumatology, in view of the symptoms that are often missed.
They promised to include ‘autoimmunity’ in the scientific session of next year’s conference.
