Dr. Morton, for his part, is a graduate in Medicine from the University of Jamaica.
During the warm meeting, were reviewed among other issues of common interest, the state of cooperation in this sector, the performance of the Cuban Medical Brigade that works here and the possibilities of expanding this group currently made up of 12 professionals.
The Ambassador commented on the new scholarship holders who will soon travel to Cuba to pursue university studies, most of them in the field of Medical Sciences.
St Kitts and Nevis and Cuba maintain a link in terms of Health that dates back to 1996, a relationship that has been strengthened throughout these almost three decades.
Also participating in the meeting was Dr. Joylette Woodley, a Surgeon trained in Cuba, where she feels she also belongs, having spent 13 memorable years of her life there.
