Simple and inexpensive medical devices can save the lives of millions if only they could access them. Come and listen to Emergency physician Dr. Tarek Loubani talk about this topic and his work in providing medical devices around the world.

Dr. Loubani has recently used 3D printers to address stethoscope shortages in Gaza, and now needs our help in developing an cheap and effective pulse oximeter - another device that should be available to hospitals and health care providers all over the world but isn’t. The technology revolution has left the world's poorest and the most vulnerable behind, but with your help we can change that!
