The speaker, Demetri Sampas, is CEO of Mal-ID and the President-Elect of Boston #7. He'll be discussing Artificial Intelligence in health, and the work he has been doing at Mal-ID applying that to detection of Oral Cancer. Mal-ID believes that serious changes are on the horizon for how visually detectable disease states, such as skin and oral cancer, are screened and diagnosed. Oral cancer has become a global crisis, and there is a pressing need for faster screenings. Mal-ID would like to be a part of that change using AI technology.

Kyoto is also Boston’s first-ever Sister City! To celebrate the 60th anniversary, the Rotary Clubs of Kyoto South and Boston #7 held an international friendship ceremony at which a Japanese Stewartia tree was planted in the Boston Public Garden, near the Make Way for Ducklings statues near the corner of Beacon and Charles Street. The event was held Saturday, April 27 2019 in the Boston Public Garden in conjunction with JapanFestivalBoston.org.
