Program Purpose / Objectives
The AHC in collaboration with Columbia University brings together a Global Health initiative with a focus on the Armenian program model.

This course is designed to provide a comprehensive review of the most important advances made in health care.

A series of highly educational and informative lectures will cover key areas of health care in Armenia. They will discuss how model programs in skeletal health, women’s health, cardiology, and dental health were developed in Armenia and how these programs can serve as model programs throughout the world.

The program will be of interest and importance to all health care professionals interested in global health challenges of our time as exemplified by these initiatives.

The conference aims to prepare participants with tools in Global Health issues by addressing each major specialty. Much of the material will be presented in lecture format by the best teachers and clinicians. In addition, each specialty will have a case-based question and answer session using an interactive computer-based system. This system will allow you (anonymously) to test your knowledge in the different areas of medicine. At the conclusion of the course, participants will be better able to:

Learning objectives:
  • To provide the latest information on nutritional, epidemiological, diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of osteoporosis
  • Give insight into dental hygiene who are living in settings that do not lend themselves to identification, treatment, and prevention.
  • To integrate knowledge of common public health problems that affect women with preventative approaches to treating them.
  • Understand the role of interventional and medical therapies in the management of cardiovascular disease
Conference Sessions generally take place on days at sea (as itinerary allows), giving you plenty of time to enjoy your meals, evenings and ports of call with your companion, family and friends.

Ports of Call

Miami, Florida - South Florida's exciting, international city is much more than the gateway to Latin America, it's one of the world's most popular vacation destinations. Before departing from Miami, enjoy a tour that will highlight this "Magic City." Board an airboat and explore the wild Everglades‐be ready to see gators. Experience the one-of-a-kind art deco district in South Beach. Discover a cuisine and culture that fits perfectly with your South American adventure.

At Sea - Cruising - Cruising

Labadee, Haiti - This tropical paradise, reserved exclusively for Royal Caribbean guests, features pristine beaches, walking trails and breathtaking vistas. Labadee is the perfect setting for parasailing, wave runners and the kayak tour, all available on your own private island.

Falmouth, Jamaica - Step off the ship and step back in time. You might not think so at first glance but little Falmouth was an economic and shipping powerhouse and center for dramatic social change during the English Colonial Period. Founded and named Martha Brae Point in 1769 by local English planter, Thomas Reid, Falmouth became the transshipment hub for the sugar plantations covering the hills of the North Coast of Jamaica. Edward Barrett, a wealthy English planter, strongly influenced the early development of Falmouth. From the wharfs of Falmouth, sugar, molasses, rum and coffee were sent to England while ships carrying African slaves and all the necessities of 18th century colonial life dropped anchor in the bustling port town. You'll return with sun kissed skin, timeless memories as well as interesting historical tidbits to share with friends, like this one: Falmouth received piped water before New York City.

Cozumel, Mexico - The Conquistadors first saw Mexico from the shores of Cozumel while searching for gold. Today, visitors to the island continue to seek out gold and silver jewelry in the shops of San Miguel while having a great time in its many local bars and restaurants. Plus, the waters around Cozumel's sheltered coral reefs make this one of the best snorkeling areas in the world.
