January 24 & 25 in Abu Dhabi: Children's doctors share knowledge at area hospitals

January 24 & 25, 2011

Our Children’s National delegation has been very busy in both Abu Dhabi and Dubai since our last post. Here are some highlights of our team’s work over the last few days.


The doctors have been busy meeting with physicians in Abu Dhabi to discuss pediatric health issues in the United States, the United Arab Emirates, and the world. They have been engaging in valuable exchanges discussing ways to better address the healthcare challenges faced by children today. These meetings have been great examples of how exchanges can prove valuable on the road to innovation and discoveries that will make like better for all children. They have also illustrated just how similar the problems being faced by children around the world really are. Dr. Cogen and Dr. Nadler have met with physicians and surgeons at the following hospitals:


Monday, January 24 - Sheikh Khalifa Medical City in Abu Dhabi

Tuesday, January 25 - Mafraq Hospital in Abu Dhabi


Some of our team members have been busy attending meetings with the U.S.-U.A.E. Healthcare Trade Mission and the Arab Healthcare Congress. Our delegates have met with leaders of local health authorities, pharmaceutical companies, and businesses in the region. These meetings have provided great insight into the healthcare environment in the United Arab Emirates and the Middle East, which will help our Children’s National team continue to support the partnership that created the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation for the children of the world.
