Med-Professionals President Visits GOARCH, Presents Award Recognizing Covid-19 Relief Fund
On Friday, November 18, HIs Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros received Ms. Eleni Chovri, President of Med-Professionals, at the Archdiocese. Ms. Chovri presented His Eminence with an honorary plaque in recognition of the assistance the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America provided to the community through its Covid-19 Relief Fund. The award had been formally announced in collaboration with Hellenic News of America and ELITOUR (Greek Health Tourism Council) at the 7th Medical Tourism Symposium at the Acropolis Museum in June 2021.
During the meeting, Ms. Chovri and Secretary Marianthi Lambrinou informed the Archbishop about their organization’s newest initiatives for strengthening relations between Greece and the diaspora through alternative forms of tourism, like health tourism. These include the “Digital Greek School,” designed specifically as an educational tool for children of the Omogeneia, and the diasporic think tank “Worldwide Communication Between Greeks and Philhellenes.” The Med-Professionals team was visiting New York last week on the occasion of the 31st Annual Hermes Expo.
