July 20th, 2010 No comments

The Medical Tourism Association, known for setting trends in the industry, announces new strategic initiatives under the theme progress in motion for global healthcare stakeholders, allowing them to discover & learn about intense topics of medical tourism, extending networking opportunities enhanced by dedicated sessions and creating knowledge sharing possibilities between government, insurance, healthcare and tourism professionals during THE World Medical Tourism & Global Healthcare Congress, taking place in LA from September 22nd – 24th. http://www.medicaltourismcongress.com.  

“We recently announced our extensive agenda, today we are announcing the list of incredible speakers, coming exclusively with the sole purpose of providing a learning platform for industry stakeholders. We are particularly encouraged at the number of high level government officials who are attending the ministerial summit which indicates growing support from all sectors for medical tourism initiatives, especially ministers of health, tourism and economic development,” said Jonathan Edelheit, CEO of the Medical Tourism Association.

MTA team worked relentlessly this year to identify and invite top government officials from across the world, eminent professionals from US & International Insurance Companies, alongside some of the largest US and International Employers, on another hand, leading medical tourism experts and top global healthcare providers are revisiting the congress.
