Publish Date: Sep 30, 2010

The International Scientific Committee of the 3rd Joint European Public Health Conference 2010 has now selected the papers, posters, and workshops to be presented at the Amsterdam conference from 10 to 13 November 2010. The Committee has received 799 abstracts and 82 workshops from 53 countries. Dr. Ruzanna Grigoryan from Armenia is among the selected participants. Her abstract entitled “Analysis of public health services in Armenia, 2009” has been accepted for oral presentation. She has another abstract entitled “Consequences of Payment Mechanisms on Tuberculosis Control” which has been accepted as a Poster Presentation at the 32nd Annual Meeting of the Society for Medical Decision Making being held October 24 – 27, 2010 at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel in Toronto, Canada. She has applied to the organizers of both conferences for the scholarship and hopefully, she will receive funding, for she really deserves it.

Dr. Grigoryan has obtained her MD from the Yerevan State Medical University and MPH from the American University of Armenia and is currently working as a Project Associate in the Centre for Health Services Research and Development, AUA. She has been involved in a number of research projects, has numerous publications, awards and honors. Ruzanna participated in the 2-nd European Public Health Conferences that were held in Lodz, Poland in November 2009 and EUPHA covered the accommodation costs and the registration fee.

In April 2010 the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing sponsored her to present the accepted abstract as a poster at the Penn-ICOWHI 18th Congress on Women’s Health Issues held April 7-10, 2010 in Philadelphia, PA.

She is an indispensable expert in the field of Public Health and is promising to bring changes in the Health System of Armenia using her international experience.
