There are as yet no set dates for this activity which is yet to be formally planned however there is an opportunity for interested parties to contact Dr Ramdas Senasi to begin a collaboration with MAM. Please note that the invitation is extended to include a radiographer/sonographer on this trip so if you do know of any interested technicians do let Dr Senasi know
