Thank you @suubi7 @wodpachua @lskindagirls @erica for a rich and productive GEM call today!

For those who couldn’t make it, below is a snapshot of what we talked about - including a number of great ideas for themes. We decided to go with “The Whole Wide World of OpenMRS” for November’s meeting.

We have a number of action items for the next week, all of which are captured on our Planning Checklist. And there’s still time (and ways) to get in on the action! If you’re interested, reach out here, on #global-events, or join Community Office Hours on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
