What We Learned on Our Cuban Vacation

From March 26 through 31, 2018, we were part of a group of eight who visited Havana, Cuba as a small delegation from the American Bar Association Health Law Section.  Our group included an electrical engineer, a healthcare administrator, a law professor, a consultant, and in-house and private practice attorneys.  We had six J.D.s and three Ph.Ds among us, and three of us have wielded the gavel as Chair of the Section, including our delegation leader, David Johnson.  We met with several professionals to learn about the Cuban government and its commitment to healthcare; we toured three medical facilities; and we enjoyed wonderful meals in private restaurants.  While our group had divergent opinions and interests, questions and skepticism, it is probably safe to say it was a fascinating visit for us all.
