Leaders from Ukraine Come to Baltimore for Program Focusing on Trauma Centers
Five medical professionals from Ukraine will be in Baltimore for eight days, starting March 10, to learn about best practices related to trauma centers and treatment that could be applicable in their country.
They are expected to meet with the staff of United States Congressman Kwesei Mfume’s,as well as experts from the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, the Limb Loss and Amputee Rehabilitation Program at the University of Maryland Rehabilitation & Orthopaedic Institute, Johns Hopkins Limb Loss Rehabilitation, Prosthetics and Orthotics, University of Maryland School of Nursing, and Dankmeyer Prosthetics and Orthotics.
They will get a feel for Maryland’s culture by visiting local landmarks, dining in Baltimore restaurants and participating in other local activities with the families in Maryland who will be hosting them.
The group will be hosted by the Baltimore-based World Trade Center Institute, which curates programs for more than 700 international visitors per year.
