SASTM CONFERENCE – TRAVEL MEDICINE IN AN AGE OF CHANGE:

We are honoured to introduce our amazing Keynote Speaker for the SASTM Conference – TRAVEL MEDICINE IN AN AGE OF CHANGE, to be held in Stellenbosch, 16 – 19 October 2024.

Dr Emmanuel Taban is a strong advocate for the values of hard work, honesty, integrity and excellence. He is a highly qualified registered Pulmonologist and Director and Partner at The Lung Institute and discovered a novel technique in extraction of mucous from the lungs in the midst of COVID-19 and made immense strides in the treatment of hypoxaemic COVID-19.

He believes that effort and applied consistently, will always yield results. The three most important values that underpin his life philosophy are PASSION, DETERMINATION and CONSISTENCY. It is these values that he hopes to impart to the youth of Africa so that they too may fulfil their potential as he has been able to.

The story of Dr Emmanuel Taban is a compelling one. Growing up in abject poverty in war-torn, rural South Sudan to becoming one of the most respected medical specialists in the field of pulmonology, his has been a truly inspirational journey.

While he has achieved immense success in his chosen profession of medicine, driven by a passion for patient care and excellent delivery of healthcare services, he remains concerned about the dire circumstances that many African children face due to a lack of good quality education.

His resilience in overcoming these extremely challenging circumstances was largely fueled by a burning desire to receive an education. Somehow, he had a strong belief that education was the most promising tool he had to rise out of poverty and hardship and to help improve the economic circumstances of his family. It is this belief that has spurred him on to continue to pursue excellence and reach the highest echelons of his career, beyond acquiring his first medical degree.

We encourage you to take the opportunity to listen to Dr Taban and his story in person, by registering for The SASTM Conference: TRAVEL MEDICINE IN AN AGE OF CHANGE, today!
