Hard to believe I messed up on this post that was created 3/31. I'm sure it was just waiting for a photo, while I started other writing projects - including shout-outs to my subscribers. My apologies. Here's the post:
We're on our way to the - International Workshop, "Community Medicine and its Impact on the Quality of Life in the Population" July 23-30, 2016 in Varadero, Cuba. Here's the Conference Itinerary
Everyone is really delighted to welcome you, and preparing the most interesting Conference content possible.
As time goes by, they'll add new lecturers by notable speakers in: Ethics, Maternal-Infantile Care, Rehab in Primary care, Stomachology, Neurodevelopment in early care, Women's health, and more.
Highly recommend this beautifullly written story about, "Doctors in Cuba".
