It is my great pleasure to share with you two of the official videos of the TEDxUniversityOfLuxembourg that we have organised in the University last 26th of October 2018. We had the honoured to have among the speakers, Prof. Richard Roberts and our very active Sara Rigon (MSF).
- Prof Roberts is well known around the world, he is the past president of WONCA World as you know and the and American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP)? His talk is about “Healing by numbers: Strategies used in manufacturing are now being applied to healthcare: assembly line production, protocol-driven care, big data. These strategies promise improved population health at lower cost. Yet, linear production models can do great harm in healthcare. This is especially true in primary care where most care is obtained and where custom solutions must be developed for each patient.” Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tr2sAvKl_qk&fbclid=IwAR34At5xh_kKL4GdtyQNlq2MOX08-8JU5zveZ2wz7BUIMYBC9zuURiAP6FQ
- Sara Rigon is a very enthusiastic and committed colleague, who is a very active member of our Family Violence group and the Equally Different Group of VdGM . She is speaking about Virginity testing and her experience working with MSF in different parts of the world (Haiti, Irak, Bangladesh…).

I hope you enjoyed the talks as much as we did and help us to share it with those who might be interested and with our Primary Care community, as there is no so many talks of Family Doctors (if there is any at all before them!) and they are just amazing!!
Wishing you all a great end of the year and sending you my best wishes for 2019!
