In statements to this magazine, Dr. Lázaro Joaquín Pérez, director of the institution, dedicated to attending foreign patients who travel to Cuba to receive treatment for different conditions, considered that event of great importance, since it contributed to the improvement of the clinic from all points of view. This forum, added Dr. Pérez, is held every year with the purpose of offering a better quality of services for all those who demand our assistance. This time, the event had it a special connotation because it is part of our tribute to the 500th anniversary of The foundation of Havana. The forum lasted two days.
