Medical insurance on the table with Hannover Re

Opened by Dr Nico van Zyl, Chief Medical Officer at Hannover Life Re Africa, this was the third such seminar, the first one in 2015 the second year running for the collaboration between Lancet Laboratories and Hannover Re.

“We have been partnering for two years now, and I think they were really successful Its fantastic seminars to see the narrative developing on these topics so far,”  said van Zyl at the seminar.

The seminar featured multiple discussion topics on the closeness of the scientific community to an HIV/AIDS ‘cure’ in more than one form, as well as breakthroughs in self-screening technology for cancer detection and what that means for the broker. Speakers presenting on these topics included accomplished virologist Professor  Eftyhia Vardas, HIV specialist Dr. Steven Miller, pathologist Dr. PD Rambau and actuarial analyst Slavica Lazic.

The next joint insurance seminar of this nature is planned for November this year – in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban as with the previous ones.
