St. Maarten – Some 240 doctors are expected to attend a medical convention which will start on Monday at the Westin Resort and Casino. Minister of Health Cornelius De Weever in welcoming the doctors said that this is a first step in medical tourism, since the conference is being held on St. Maarten. He told the visitors that he is delighted that they have chosen St. Maarten as the venue for the conference.

It was pointed out that it was a good gesture by the organizers that include Dr. Louis Jeffery from the Louis Constant Fleming to have the doctors here for the conference so that they could have an opportunity to assist the doctors in the medical institutions and also assimilate information among the different churches on the island. He extended a warm welcome to the visiting physicians and their families who will be here for the duration of the conference and hope that they will enjoy their stay.

Dr Paul Nacier who practices in Brooklyn, New York outlined that during their stay they will be devoting two days to the general public where they will be working along with the doctors at the Louis Constant Fleming Hospital on the French Side. He explained that there are a number of specialists who are attending the conference will be “willing to serve and share their expertise with the people and the doctors.”
The Association of Haitian Physicians has been meeting to discuss different issues over the last 40 years at different venues. During the sessions next week they will be examining the scientific aspects of their profession. This year it is their intention to discuss the emergency management towards different specialties where they will have discussions with doctors at the hospital on different cases.
