Furthermore, Children’s Mercy representatives joined the trip to discuss possible partnership with the Children’s Hospital of Mexico. In addition, KUMC representatives will attend meetings with the sub-secretary of Integration and Development of Health of Mexico and the ministry of health of Cuernavaca, Mexico to discuss ongoing and future projects.


Update from Dr. Cupertino; great connection with the National Commission of Addictions in Mexico has been formed. Both teams will be staying in Mexico until Thurday August 29th to continue creating great partnerships with our neighboring country.
