KU School of Medicine faculty members take part in Shanghai Symposium
Eyad Al-hihi, M.D., MBA, FACP, associate professor, vice chairman and acting clinical service chief in the Department of Internal Medicine at the University of Kansas Medical Center, delivered a keynote presentation at the U.S.-China Health Cooperation Shanghai Symposium last fall in Shanghai, China.
The November event was sponsored by the United States Trade and Development Agency, the American Chamber of Commerce in China, the U.S.-China Healthcare Cooperation Program and the Shanghai Medical Association. Al-hihi's presentation was titled "Experience and Lessons of American Chronic Diseases Management."
"This was a great opportunity to exchange knowledge and experiences internationally," Al-hihi said.
During the trip, Al-hihi was also able to meet with some of the Chinese physicians who trained with him at KU Medical Center as part of the Sino-US Advanced Health Care Professional Exchange during the last four years. Seven groups of physicians from China have taken part in the program, which was established in 2014.
Chen, M.D., Ph.D., MPH, professor and director of the Office of Scholarly, Academic and Research Mentoring in the KU Department of Internal Medicine, moderated a panel discussion at the symposium.
