In the summer of 2016, over 200 IMANA families enjoyed a weeklong getaway to the tropical paradise island of Hispaniola for our 48th annual convention at the Dominican Republic. We were delighted to see many old friends and enjoyed the opportunity to meet numerous new families who have recently joined our extended IMANA family.
The CME committee organized an advanced learning environment for physicians in a rapidly evolving healthcare environment, which was attended by approximately 70 IMANA members and local Dominican physicians as well. We were honored to partner with a local university, Universidad Iberoamericana (UNIBE) for allowing us to host our conference on their beautiful campus. A handful of IMANA members in attendance are graduates of this leading university in health sciences and were delighted to visit their alma mater.
The Annual IMANA Banquet at the Hilton in Santo Domingo was well attended by IMANA members, families and a number of IMR volunteers which served as an excellent opportunity to honor Dr. Ismail Mehr, who completed his two year term as IMANA president.
