2. Electronic medical records and laboratory information systems designed specifically for developing world healthcare systems
3. Digital healthcare information resources including the digital African healthcare library

All three of these stations will be facilitated by experts in these fields with passion and experience in seeing these technologies help medical missionaries provide the best of care in Christ's name.
