November 2016: Photos from Las Palmas, GNU Health Social Medicine Award at GNU Health Con

RMS was in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain, this month to take part in the first edition of the International GNU Health Conference (2016-11-18–20), three days of sessions, workshops, and networking with the main players in the GNU Health community.

He gave the keynote speech, “Free Software and Medicine”1, to an audience of “enthusiasts and developers of the Free/Libre Health & Hospital Information System.”

At the end of the event, RMS was awarded the conference's GNU Health Social Medicine Award for an individual, in recognition of his work. As GNU Solidario president Luis Falcón stated, “Projects like GNU/Linux or GNU Health would not exist without him.”

After the conference, Falcón concluded, "We are very proud to have brought together Richard and a group of professionals who are very qualified in medical computing and who, most importantly, are committed to Free Software in Medicine.”
