Medical Delegation from Najaf, Iraq

Posted on December 21, 2011 by

In October and November of 2011, a medical delegation from Najaf visited Minnesota to build relations with health-care professionals, universities and hospitals. Local volunteers hosted the physicians in their homes and provided transportation, interpretation, and other services. One of the delegates, Dr. Ali Rashid, said, ““Iraqi doctors are eager to learn, but we don’t have the opportunity to learn. Thank you for this exceptional trip.””
