Her vision is to improve the Health sector in line with global best practice, for the benefit of all end users and it is in tandem with the goals of AfPS 2018. We caught up with Pharm Estelle at the #HealthMeetsTech Hackathon in Abuja where she left the audience astonished with her knowledge. She will be live at the AfPS as a panelist and we know you wouldn’t want to pass up on such opportunity #AfPS2018
