40th annual Medical Congress gets boost from Nedbank

The 40th Annual Medical Congress hosted by the Medical Association of Namibia (MAN) is taking place on 19 and 20 July at the Windhoek Country Club. The association’s chairman, Dr David Weber (pictured) said that for the past 40 years, their Annual Congress has been recognised for its excellence, and that this year is no exception.

The congress runs under the theme, “Global trends in medicine” and it recently received a boost of N$95,000 from Nedbank Namibia.

Delegates can look forward to topics such as “Advances in Paediatric Ophthalmology” by Dr. Julia Jansen van Rensburg; “Genes and disease management – whereto from here?” by Prof Monique Zaahl and “Can we predict Pre-Eclampsia in the 21st century” by Prof Mushi Matjila.

Head of Nedbank Wealth, Cornell Meeks said the bank wishes to build stronger relationships with the medical fraternity.

“We believe this investment will contribute immensely to the improvement of the Namibian medical sector,” he added.

“We are grateful for the sponsorship from Nedbank Namibia and trust that our relationship will grow stronger with years to come,” said Dr Weber.
