In late January, Dr. Eyal Sela, Head of ENT and Head and Neck Surgery at GMC, and Amir Yarchi, CEO of the Friends of Galilee Medical Center, were in the United States for a national tour. They visited Los Angeles, Dallas and New York to meet with individuals and organizations to create new partnerships, both philanthropic and academic.
At the conclusion of the national tour, they visited West Point Military Academy, where they were warmly welcomed by the West Point community. There, Dr. Sela gave a lecture to students, faculty and staff. He spoke about Galilee Medical Center’s life-saving medical treatment of injured Syrian patients. The visit also presented an opportunity for Dr. Sela and Amir to re-connect with West Point students and faculty that visited GMC in June 2017 as part of the Peace and Dialogue Leadership Initiative.
