The delegation was received by the vice-governor in charge of the Executive Power, Osvaldo Jaldo; the vice president of the Legislature, Regino Amado; the minister of Public Health, Rossana Chahla; the national deputy, Pablo Yedlin; and the legislator Graciela Gutiérrez. The health minister stressed that Tucumán is the first Argentine province to have a collaboration of this magnitude with the Hadassah Medical Organization. “It is a great advance for constant training and exchange with the doctors and professionals of the prestigious Israeli institution,” she said in this regard. According to her, this meeting will allow the interchange of knowledge, research work, conferences, seminars, and the ability to schedule rotations for doctors from Tucumán to Israel and doctors from Israel to the province. The vice-governor emphasized that “it is an improvement for the health of the public system, which will allow our professionals, as well as our hospitals, to acquire better and more knowledge.”
