  • Visiting Cardiologist Program Had Another Successful Year

    24th April 2014

    roweThe Ministry of Health’s “Visiting Specialist Programme” continues to be a success story.

    The programme is one in which medical experts from overseas provide their expertise to the residents of the island.

    For the third consecutive year Montserrat-born US- based cardiologist Dr Icilma Fergus-Rowe has visited the island under the program.

    Dr Fergus-Rowe is the President of the Association of Black Cardiologists in the United States, and Associate Professor of Medicine at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York.

    In 2011, she started a series of annual visits to Montserrat leading teams of heart experts in providing specialist service to residents here.

    Reporting on this year’s visit which ended last Thursday she said she said “there were certainly some patient cases where the visit was absolutely critical and this reinforces how much need is still unmet on the island.”
