"I have regularly organised, with the help of many local and international speakers, basic and advanced ultrasound courses in Egypt (and other countries in the middle-east). Many of these courses were ISUOG approved. It is always a pleasure to meet young people eager to learn, and to see year after year the positive feedback and the growing interest in prenatal diagnosis and ISUOG activities".
