Book release: Fundamentals of Telemedicine and Telehealth (2)

6 September, 2019

Dear Dr Gogia

Congratulations for this great achievement. I have witnessed the launch of the book in Lyon, France and was a fantastic occasion. The book (based on the flyer) is an excellent contribution to tele-Health and tele-Medicine which is how information and communication technology can be used to serve humanity. Offering the book at discounted rate in some countries is a good idea but would be great if it was offered for open access so that people from developing countries who either cannot afford any price or do not have mechanism to transfer money to the published. Personally, I would love to have a copy and pay for it.

Best regards.
