Russian Minister of Health,
If you are old enough to remember Détante or even Ping-Pong Diplomacy, you know that frequently, health care has flown above politics.
I am proud to have played a small role in a proton center being established in St. Petersburg, Russia. It has been a long road from the time the equipment was purchased, the site was built and the equipment was installed.
With clinical commissioning right around the corner, the Russian Minister of Health, Veronika Skvortsova visited our center in St. Petersburg. Ms. Skvortsova is a Neurologist and is a 5th generation physician. In May of this year, she was elected president of the World Health Organization.
There is a lot of debate about proton therapy, I know. But I believe it is here to stay.
