PCRF Sponsors Training Abroad for Pediatric Cardiologist
PCRF Sponsors Training Abroad for Pediatric Cardiologist

Last month, PCRF sent Dr. Rula Awad, one of the very few pediatric cardiologists, to Ein Shams University in Egypt for invasive cardiology training with Prof. Mai Hamdi Said. PCRF is working to respond to the urgent needs of sick and injured children in the Middle East by treating them now, while also building long-term support for more sustainable health care in Palestine, especially in the areas of cancer, cardiac surgery, orthopedics and other sub-specializations that will reduce the referrals of children outside.  Dr. Awad is working at the Palestine Medical Complex and helping to build the only public pediatric cardiology and cardiac surgery program here.  Just last week, PCRF signed an agreement to start building a new cardiology department in Ramallah, and the training of Dr. Awad will help enhance and develop that department.
