APF's Medical Birthright Program Hits
a New Milestone!   
2016 APF Birthright Trip Participants 

For the first time in its 10-year history, APF's Medical Birthright Program brought not just one but two groups of North American healthcare students to Israel in 2016. On this unique trip, future doctors, nurses and other providers had the pleasure of experiencing Israel as tourists while learning about the country's healthcare system.

Dr. Miguel Glatstein Travels Twice for Toxicology
Dr. Miguel Glatstein and his family
O ne man's passion is another man's poison, they say.
Unless you're talking about those like Dr. Miguel Glatstein, for whom poison is a passion.
Pediatric emergency physician Glatstein is a 2016-2017 APF Clinical Fellow in Toxicology at the Rocky Mountain Poison and Drug Center in Denver, CO.

"I'm passionate about toxicology because it is a specialty in which you have to be very specific very quickly. You must know a lot of physiology, biochemistry and pharmacology. It's not easy, but I adore it."
