The Santa María La Antigua Catholic University and the City of Knowledge Foundation held the Presentation of the Institute of Global Health and Tropical Medicine of the Santa María La Antigua Catholic University (USMA), on Wednesday, November 27 at the City of Knowledge.
Professor Jorge Arosemena, Executive President of the City of Knowledge Foundation, mentioned that this “workshop is essential because it is the presentation of an Institute that wants to dedicate its resources to health, a subject that is extremely important. A new contribution to research in our country is always welcomed.”
Dr. Yanet Torres Acosta, Specialist of I and II degree in Family Medicine with emphasis on infectology at the level of primary health care, was responsible for carrying out the presentation of the Institute. According to Dr. Torres “the Institute of Global Health and Tropical Medicine aims to contribute to scientific knowledge, through the development of multidisciplinary research projects, academic proposals of excellence and the search for financial cooperation.”
“In the world plenty of global health institutes have been created and we did not want Panama to be an exception. This Institute, based at the USMA, is already developing research on various topics such as dyslexia and its relationship with school failure, climate change, and HIV, relying on networks that help us to be a health promoting community”, said Dr. Torres.
