ASM in Namibia


An ASM delegation traveled to Namibia in early April 2014 to promote the establishment of three Bio-Resource Centers (BRC) and expand the ASM membership in Namibia.  The BRCs, strategically situated at the Polytechnic of Namibia, University of Namibia, and the Namibia Institute of Pathology, will provide students, faculty, and healthcare professionals with access to up-to-date scientific information to help maintain, improve and extend their knowledge, skills and competencies necessary to better meet the country's evolving and emerging health care needs.  Over 50 individuals from the aforementioned academic and healthcare institutions have joined ASM and are eager to contribute and connect with other ASM members for the advancement of science in their country and globally.
