In the graduation showcase, Medicron has taken home a Most Social Impact Award!
The showcase was very successful, we would like to thank, Doug Neal, Amy Klinky, Paul Kirsch, and Susan Hill, for organizing such a amazing event.
We would like to offer our thanks for all your support, help, mentorship, and networking possibilities.

We are very excited for the work to come this summer to visit Africa this upcoming July. We will be finalizing our funding through Abbot Fund, and start building our first prototype.

Our Initial Logo

Welcome to the Medicron Blog!

 

We’re University of Michigan students working to provide Information Systems to AIDS health facilities in Africa.

 

Look through our website to see our current projects, at the moment we’re doing anthropological and technical research.

 

We’re excited at how far we've come and how much we can help.

 

In the past we started a small company called Sentient Wings Inc where we offered visual information to farmers to maximize their yields.

 

In spite of its coolness, we actually hit many roadblocks such as FAA regulation, lack of farmer’s interest, and the list goes on. What we've learned from Sentient Wings is that it’s really hard to find a problem that people desperately need solved. This is because there’s an abundance of technology available to U.S. citizens.

 

We had vast technical skills and experience but we had no problems to solve it with. 

 

On top of that, we lost two partners after the fall of Sentient Wings, and hit a roadblock trying to find a niche. My partner, Zahid and I have worked hard creating contacts, cold calling, and researching, just to see what kind of problems we can solve. All we were looking for was something that would help improve people’s quality of life.

 

A few weeks ago we hit the jackpot. We were put in contact with Andrew Schroeder (Direct Relief International) through John Lummins and we kicked off the Medicron Project.

 

The Network Information System for health facilities and medical laboratories in Tanzania, Ethiopia, and many other countries. We will provide the medical information throughout the whole country as well as provide detailed information on their equipment and supplies. 

 

This is just an introduction, many updates are coming and we’d really like input on our project and to have your support as well.

 

Thank you for your interest in Medicron!
