More on mobile phones

You may have read in the Archive of February 2012, about BTMAT’s mobile phone initiative. A study of the anticipated usefulness of simple phones in our follow-up work in Cameroon was presented at the SIOP Auckland conference, and at a meeting of doctors interested in paediatric oncology in developing countries in London. Lorreta Chindo – a student at Leeds University – carried out the research for us. A letter to the Editor of SIOP’s journal – Pediatric Blood and Cancer – has just been accepted for publication.

On behalf of BTMAT, our congratulations to Lorreta – who has just completed her final examinations for her MB ChB at Leeds Medical School – and to our co-authors. Here is the Editor’s email:
