    Great job Thomas! I’ve always found e-health very important work. I didn’t know that Cuba was so well known for e-health!

      Thanks Hannah! I look forward to continuing down this road and hopefully will make it down to Cuba soon to get first-hand experience.

    Very interesting, I had no clue Cuba was a leader in eHealth. Hopefully you’ll be able to continue with your research, COVID had roadblocks for my project as well. 🙂
