crowded second auditorium at Varna Medical University on September 30th.

opportunities of the online recourses by Mr. Bogdan Chubak - an exclusive representative
for Romania, Moldova, Bulgaria, Poland, Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia.

place physicians and students in medicine are able to find information about
symptoms, treatment methods (including pharmacotherapy), information about
