New York, 1st of March

 

French-American start-up Invivox.com and the New York based foundation « Surgeons of Hope » are delighted to announce their partnership in the field of Medical Education in the field of Cardiology.

 

Since its inception in Sept 2016, Invivox offers the global Medical community the possibility to connect on its platform in order to find practical training with another doctor (expert in his/her field). Invivox is referred to as the ‘airbnb’ of continuing medical training (article Usine Nouvelle).

 

Surgeons of Hope sponsors surgical teams to travel to developing countries and operate on children, equipping and supplying the local hospital as needed.  While there, the teaching team works in collaboration with the local medical team to provide training in and access to modern procedures.  That training provides the seeds for sustainability

 

  “In addition to medical education, the Experts trainers on Invivox willing to support the Foundation “Surgeons of Hope” now have the possibility to donate their revenues of the trainings to the Foundation. By doing so, they offer their financial contribution to the medical training of their colleagues in developing countries” adds Julien Delpech, CEO of Invivox

 

According to Charles-Edouard Catherine, executive Director of Surgeons of Hope, “Invivox and Surgeons of Hope clearly have a lot in common. We both focus on Medical Education, we have the same audience, and we both want to create synergies between Doctors who simply want to share their valuable knowledge. This partnership is a perfect fit!”

About SURGEONS of HOPE

It is an unconscionable loss that a child dies anywhere in the world from a heart defect due to lack of resources for proper care, when a child living in the most remote area of the U.S. with the same heart defect would be easily cured.  SoH seeks to narrow that disparity by living up to its motto: “It’s Not What We Bring.  It’s What We Leave Behind”. SoH sponsors surgical teams to travel to developing countries and operate on children, equipping and supplying the local hospital as needed.  While there, the teaching team works in collaboration with the local medical team to provide training in and access to modern procedures.  That training provides the seeds for sustainability…”What We Leave Behind”.  Where appropriate, we also construct, equip, and supply a modern Surgical Center in that country to serve as an educational surgical unit for the surrounding region.  In short, we are curing, training, and building as a key to narrowing the medical resource gap between the developed and the developing nations.
