Speaking with our Correspondent in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital on Thursday, Attai described his experience as wonderful.
He said ” It was a wonderful experience coupled with the fact that it was a product of multidisciplinary research because we had medical doctors, nurses, community health workers and computer scientists. It was not just Ritman University alone; we had team members from Mount Royal University, Canada, the University of Uyo Teaching Hospital, Computer Science Department, University of Uyo and team members from Uganda, the US and the United Kingdom.
“I was part of the team that helped to develop the Mobile APP Diagnostic System for Tropical Febrile Diseases and I am grateful to the management of Ritman University for contributing in sponsoring my trip.
“This award will really influence my performance because in academics, “if you don’t publish you perish’ So, it will improve my research skills. Even the trip itself has exposed me, I was able to connect with other researchers from Germany and other parts of the world and we have been collaborating since then”.
