The Society of Gynaecology and Obstetrics of Nigeria (SOGON) through its committee on Continuous Professional Development and training, has partnered pharmaceutical giant Sanofi Nigeria Limited on the training of medical doctors on “Antenatal Immunization and its Role in Reducing Infant Mortality”.
The webinar which is scheduled to hold on Saturday, September 12th, 2020 will start by 12pm (West African Time).
Among the eminent speakers at the event are; Prof. Beckie Nnenna Tagbo, Chief Editor of the Paediatric textbook titled “Quick Glance at Paediatrics”; Chizoba Barbara Wonodi, Nigeria Country Director for International Vaccine Access Center (IVAC), John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health; Abidoye Gbadegesin, Vice-chairman of Society of Gynaecologists and Obstetricians of Nigeria (SOGON), Lagos Sector.
The Society of Gynaecology and Obstetrics (SOGON) is the umbrella body for all Gynaecologists and Obstetricians in Nigeria and part of its mandate is providing opportunities for continuous professional development for members.
Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resultant restriction in movement and large gatherings, the organization has resorted to organizing webinars for members to gain more knowledge and improve their practise. This has been achieved by partnering with relevant organizations and resource persons from Nigeria and other countries to deliver the best in class training and sessions, delivered online.
Partnering with pharmaceutical giant Sanofi Nigeria Ltd., which also happens to be one of the leading manufacturers of antenatal vaccines, is indeed a testament to the intent and commitment of both organizations on the development of medical doctors in Nigeria.
