Yenaivis Fuentes Ascencio

Yenaivis Fuentes Ascencio, 23, a medical student from Guantánamo, Cuba and Aníbal Ramos Socarrás, 30, a surgery resident from Manzanillo,  Cuba are currently on a tour of the US.  We understand that they have been in Atlanta, the Twin Cities and Chicago and will be traveling to Washington before arriving in New York City on Saturday.  They will be visiting and talking in New York on April 12 (at the Schomberg Center) on April 13th (at Rutgers University) and on April 14th (at Hofstra in the morning and Hunter College in the evening) before leaving for the West Coast on Thursday.

It is not often that we have a chance to have a face-to-face discussion with Cubans from the island in the United States.  We understand that US students who have studied at ELAM (the Latin American Medical school) will be speaking at the Schomberg Center event. For more information call: Nellie Bailey 646-812-5188 or Tom Baumann 646-256-0992.  A fairly complete list of their engagements can be found at this link.
