Italian Training Mission Arrives in Gaza

This week, a five-member team of Italian doctors arrived to start a ten-day mission of workshops and lectures in emergency medicine and anesthesia care at the European Gaza Hospital in the southern Gaza Strip. The team members are Anesthesia and Intensivist Dr. Baldassare Ferro, Emergency Medicine specialists Dr. Stefano Spinelli, Dr. Alessandro Cipriano and Dr. Alessandro Lamorte, along with Dr. Francesca Frassi. This is part of our effort to train and provide support for improving the local medical care and support of patients. This project is sponsored by the Tuscany Regional government and Waldensian Church in Italy, and in partnership with Livorno Hospital, The University of Pisa, Rainbow4Africa Association, and the Italian Society of Emergency and Urgency Medicine.
