USA Visit

Alex’s visit to the USA this March was very successful. He met the new Consul General of Romania, Mr. Cosmin Dumitrescu, PhD who was very keen and willing to help. He felt it was important that our work should be made more visible to the Romanian diaspora.

As part of his visit Alex also took part in the LA Marathon and attended the Best Practices in Medical Virtual Reality conference.

Los Angeles Marathon 

Alex and a team of twelve runners took part in the Los Angeles marathon.

Best Practices in Medical Virtual Reality Conference

In our last newsletter we reported on some of the ways we were introducing technology to help us provide better services to our patients and that Dr. Spiegel of the Cedars-Sinai Center for Outcomes Research and Education was Ambassador for this project. Cedars-Sinai hosted the Best Practices in Medical Virtual Reality conference which brought together medical professionals and tech industry specialists from around the world to discuss the impact VR is having on healthcare and medical training.

Alex found the conference “thought-provoking enlightening and inspiring” and was fascinated to hear about the ways in which Virtual Reality is being used to treat patients with life-limiting conditions, across the world.

For further information on the conference see our website which also describes how we are helping patients through technology
