“Talento Solidario” Award, Fundación Botín (2014)

The project “Teleasistencia Salud 2.0” (Telemedicine Health 2.0) has been recognized by the Fundación Botín in the 5th Edition of its “Charitable Talent Program.” This initiative encourages social organizations to hire highly-qualified job-seekers that can help develop and launch social projects. The Fundación Botín pays their salary for one year, with the possibility of a one-year extension.

Our project has a different goal: to save lives through continuing professional development. The exchange of knowledge and information not only provides advanced training to African doctors, but also allows Spanish specialists to learn about cases and conditions unknown to Spain. In fact, some of the results obtained through this collaboration have led to case studies and have been published in leading scientific journals.
