Book Talk: Health Cooperation with Russia – an Example of Engagement that Really Worked

The Eurasian Medical Education Program was established in 1995 during a difficult period of transition for Russia. Created in partnership with the American College of Physicians, the program was designed to share clinical and scientific knowledge with Russian physicians by way of physician exchanges to Russian regional academic centers in 13 regions. The panelists will discuss how the program succeeded not only in the sphere of health but also in political and diplomatic engagement, and how elements of this success may be replicable today.
