We met recently with the Vice President of the Dominican Republic to discuss a more permanent form of medical licensing of our U.S. surgeons than is presently possible in the country. This meeting was arranged by Mercedes Small, a past CURE Clubfoot Worldwide coordinator for the region. The Vice President is a very patient and kind man who listened as we explained our situation and our solid commitment to the Dominican Republic. It was a very productive meeting and a fun adventure!!
