Dr. Marc Cohen in Israel to join APF’s Podiatric Scientific Mission

Dr. Marc Cohen of Marlboro Podiatry Center in Manalapan, NJ recently traveled to Israel to join APF’s (American Healthcare Professionals & Friends for Medicine in Israel) Podiatric Scientific Mission in Israel. The goal of the APF is to form relationships between American physicians and Israeli physicians; and to encourage the exchange of ideas and techniques. During the 12 day visit, Cohen joined more than 25 podiatric surgeons who participated in this mission.

A particular highlight was the educational lectures and workshops at the three major medical centers visited during the mission. At Rambam Health Care Campus in Haifa, the trauma coordinator gave a rare and unforgettable look at their underground fortified facility. In addition to Rambam’s lectures and educational experiences, Cohen participated in tours and workshops at the Medical Center of the Galilee and Soroka Medical Center in Be’er Sheva.
