The World Medical Tourism & Global Health Congress™ announces it’s 2009 Pre Conference Workshops and Agenda! The congress will be held in Los Angeles California, October 26th through October 28th. Given the challenges that most companies and industries are facing this year with the economic crisis, Medical Tourism is more important than ever before, creating more economically viable healthcare solutions and providing a profitable return on investment.
