All are welcome
to attend a presentation by members of the Medical Team of the Muratsan Clinic of Chemotherapy of Yerevan University Hospital in Armenia, a Pediatric Oncology Center that works with children and their families from all over Armenia. 

During Holy Trinity's Pilgrimage to Armenia in July 2016, the group visited the Muratsan Chemotherapy Clinic and met several of the children undergoing chemotherapy treatment for different forms of cancer.  So moved by what they saw, the group wanted to help these children.  The Clinic is in dire need of medical equipment, basic supplies and chemotherapy drugs.  In an effort to raise awareness and much-needed funds for the Clinic, several members of the Medical Team were invited to Holy Trinity Church to talk to the community about their Program.  These members - Liana Safaryan, MD, an Oncologist; Yester Nazarethyan, NP, Nurse Practitioner; Yeva Asribabayan, Psycho-Social Specialist; and Alisa Kamalyan, a Social Worker (photos from top left to right and bottom left to right) - will be undergoing training at Dana-Farber in October.  The Muratsan Clinic has been working with the City of Smile Foundation in Yerevan, Armenia and the Global Health Initiative of the Dana-Farber/Boston Children's Hospital. 

Light refreshments will be served.  Please RSVP your attendance to
htaacwomen@gmail.com, or call the Holy Trinity Church office, 617.354.0632.

Sponsored by the Women of Holy Trinity.
