Repeated exchange visits to hospitals and Children's Hospital Boston and the University of Texas Health Sciences, among others, have allowed the Santiago doctor prestigious meet the academic, scientific and educational potential of their US counterparts, and show significant results achieved by the pediatric neurosurgery at the greater Antilles, even though more than 50 years of US blockade to Cuba brake turn to this medical field.
The Master in Science Brossard Alejo, also a senior lecturer in neurosurgery at the hospital institution, recognized the solidarity contribution of American colleagues and the growing interest shown by meet and exchange with professionals from Cuba.
“Counterparts in various medical institutions in the United States always manifested in favor of active cooperation in the field of neurosurgery have, says the doctor, and gesture of solidarity has provided literature and other materials currently used in the care of children and girls admitted to our service.
"Particularly worth noting the contribution of the organization Global Links, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, by which we have high value resources that improve and enhance the quality of surgical procedures.”
