On August 7, 2003, WiRED International launched a seven-station Medical Information Center at the University of Leon School of Medicine. The facility will serve 1,300 faculty, students and medical professionals. Leon, the second largest city in Nicaragua, is located 15 miles from the Pacific Ocean.
The room at the Al Kadhymia Teaching Hospital in Iraq had bars on the windows, lots of electrical outlets, and plenty of space to accommodate computers. I was traveling with an American computer technician and an Iraqi physician in May on a project sponsored by the U.S. Department of State to create medical-information centers at teaching hospitals and medical schools throughout the country.
WiRED International will provide a Medical Information Center for faculty and students of the Medical School at the University of Nicaragua in Leon. We are grateful to the Tiburon-Belvedere Rotary Club for underwriting the installation of this new Center.
