Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Katherine opened the International Medical Symposium “Current trends in the treatment and rehabilitation of hearing loss and deafness” at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.
The opening ceremony was attended by Prof. Dr. Nenad Arsovic, President of the Serbian Society of Otorhinolaryngology and director of the Clinic for Otorhinolaryngology and Maxillofacial Surgery, Clinical Center of Serbia, as well as the experts from this field of medicine from The Holley Institute – Ardis J. Gardella, Dr. Daniel Megler and Dr. Jill Courson.
“I am very happy to be the patron of this symposium about treatment and rehabilitation of hearing impaired and deaf children. I am glad we are talking about results of neonatal screening in Serbia and experience from other countries. We have here today our dear friends from United States of America who often help children with hearing problems, so we can hear about their experience. My foundation works a lot on cooperation with doctors from abroad, on collecting help for hospitals and the education of doctors in Serbia, and there will be a great gathering of doctors from the diaspora in June at the Serbian Medical Diaspora Conference, said HRH Crown Princess Katherine.
The symposium is organized by the Serbian Society of Otorhinolaryngology, on the occasion of the World Hearing Day and celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Center for Audiological Rehabilitation of the Clinic for Otorhinolaryngology and Maxillofacial Surgery, Clinical Center of Serbia.
