Scientific meetings are held by the Letten Foundation Zimbabwe once every last Friday of the month at the Letten house. This is a forum specifically designed to showcase research abilities by Masters and PhD students sponsored by Letten Foundation and all the scientific fraternity are welcome.
Students volunteer to be slotted to a given timetable and present on a topic related to their area of research.
At this forum, students compliment, criticize and correct each other. By so doing, students are groomed to be able to present in front of a crowd, accept criticism and map a way forward in their research endeavors.
This year marked a major scientific presentation for Letten Visit in May 2012, on this day all Letten Foundation students were requested to present. Students who did not present were lined up for the presentation after the month of May 2012.
In June 2012, a Masters student Mufarowashe Masanganise Chikafu presented her research title entitled, ‘Unmet needs of contraception among women participating in the PMTCT Study’.
The presentation focused on finding out the unmet needs in a PMTCT study in Zimbabwe.
Danai Zhou will be presenting on, ‘Haemotological profiles of women in a PMTCT cohort in peri urban Harare, Zimbabwe’, on the 6th of July 2012.
This coincides with Professor Babill’s visit and all students and interested parties are invited to attend.
