June 1, 2009

On May 12th, FAR’s CME (Continuing Medical Education) Program participants visited the St. Narek Health Center in Vanadzor, capital of the Lori region of Armenia. Many CME Program participants are from the Lori region.

During the visit, CME Program participants were familiarized with operation of the CT scanner, a gift from the American chapter of FAR. The trip also included a presentation of the CME program to local doctors, led by FAR Health Programs Coordinator Hambardzum Simonyan. The visit also included presentations delivered by Yerevan State Medical University lecturers, revealing practical approaches to critical medical issues. Magda Yeghiazaryan discussed Infusion therapy, and Narine Mirzoyan presented Rational Antibacterial Therapy.

This visit to Vanadzor again evidenced the positive impact of FAR’s CME Program in enabling medical practitioners in regional hospitals.
