Nurses from Greece Bone Up on Fractures at an International Conference

November 25, 2021

ATHENS – Twenty-eight early-career nurses from Greece will have the opportunity to broaden their knowledge in the surgical treatment of fractures at an international conference taking place in Athens, Greece, November 25-26. At the conference, participants will take part in discussions and hands-on exercises on surgical technique, in addition to attending presentations

The nurses’ participation is made possible with the support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) as part of its major ongoing Health Initiative in Greece, which includes infrastructure projects, equipment procurement, educational programs, and other efforts to ensure access to high-quality healthcare for all. Training on the treatment of trauma is a key pillar of the initiative, implemented in collaboration with the nonprofit Regeneration & Progress, a longstanding partner to SNF on issues related to health and sports.

The president of Regeneration & Progress, orthopedic surgeon Dr. Panagiotis Koulouvaris, will participate in the conference as a speaker and practical seminar lecturer.

The conference is organized by ΑΟ Trauma, and the SNF grant for the nurses to attend is implemented through TRAUMAEDU.
