His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler's Representative in the Western Region of Abu Dhabi visits Children's National Medical Center!

We were thrilled to have His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nayhan visit Children's National at the Sheikh Zayed Campus on Friday, June 7th. He was accompanied by his sons, Sheikh Sultan and Sheikh Zayed, as well as UAE Ambassador Yousef Al Otaiba and Deputy Chief of Mission Omar Al Shamsi. The delegation, greeted by Kurt Newman, MD, Mark Batshaw, MD, Tony Sandler, MD, and Pam King Sams, toured the Sheikh Zayed Institute, stopping to see the bioengineering labs, 3D Printer, and Pain Medicine Care Complex
