“Health wave” with Infoflot!
Traditional Russian event “Health Wave” was held on board Infoflot Cruise Company ship “Alexandre Benois” from 31 August to 7 September.
“Health Wave” is a ship tour with high-tech diagnostic equipment and the medical team from the leading scientific and medical centers on board.
The tour divides into medical and educational parts including seminars. The main idea is to help children who loves far away from medical centers, using modern medical equipment and assistance of the best specialists from leading federal centers and clinics. Consultations and training workshops for professionals are also a part of this event. Festivals, concerts, shows and sporting events are organized for the public.
The first “Health Wave” was held in 2006, when teams of doctors, artists, prominent public figures were in the cruise. They visited many towns and cities and helped many people. This year the itinerary was like this: from Nizhny Novgorod the ship traveled to Kazan, then to Saratov, Samara, Ulyanovsk and Cheboksary, then returned to Nizhny Novgorod.
In each city medical examination was conducted for children with congenital heart defects, impaired vision, speech, kidney disease, lung and respiratory tract, musculoskeletal system, neurological, maxillofacial diseases.
We are proud of the fact that such an important event took place on board our ship!
