Dr Kim Lamont

Dr Kim Lamont completed her undergraduate degree in molecular cell biology at the University of Limpopo in 2006. She then completed her honours degree in medicine in 2007. Her enthusiasm has lead to the completion of her MSc in medicine with distinction, in 2009. She has recently completed her PhD studies in 2012. She has won several accolades for both oral and poster presentations.

One of her interests is ensuring the dissemination of health information to individuals from different socioeconomic standards. For this reason she eagerly joined HeduAfrica in April 2012, and was selected to feature in a video for healthy living. Dr Lamont is a part of the HeduAfrica think tank and spends some of her free time showing patients how to access health information from ipads and touch screen technology at the maternity hospital in Groot Schuur.
