CAMAC vs. China Medical Exchange 2009
Invited by the Cancer Institute of Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences (CICAMS), five CAMAC members headed by Dr. Lin Zhang, President of CAMAC, Drs. Dawei Zheng, Deyi Zheng, Julia Li, and David Y. Tang visited Beijing, China from June 21 to June 27, 2009 and hosted a medical exchange program.
Drs. Youlin Qiao of CICAMS and Lin Zhang presided over the conference. Dr. Tang started with the topic of “United Stated Health Care Reform” to elaborate advantage and disadvantage of US health care system. Dr. Deyi Zheng subsequently talked about “Cancer Screening in the US”. Next, Dr. Li introduced ” Psychological Management of the Cancer Patients”. Finally, Dr. Dawei Zheng finished the program with the topic of ” Family Medicine in US”, which drew strong interests from the audience and stirred up warm discussions. CAMAC members had a direct and extensive communication with their attendees and fulfilled the purpose of the CAMAC’s mission.
Our host welcomed CAMAC members with a unique dinner at Sichuna Restaurant as soon as the members arrived in Beijing on June 21, 2009. Since the impact of H1N1, the host had to cancel the plan to visit Linxian of Henan province, but instead, sent the CAMAC members and their families onto a five day trip to Yungan Shiku, Yingxian Ancient Tower, The Xuankong Temple, Yanmen Pass, Taiyuan city, Jin Temple, Pingyiao Acient city, Qiao Family Complex, and Dazai village in Shanxi province. The CAMAC members and their families had a wonderful chance to learn about the history and culture of China.
This 2009 medical exchange program was completed successfully following Dr. Lin Zhang’s half-year long efforts and preparation. CAMAC board is considering the similar educational activities in the future.
