During the Health Summit in early February, our team in Nicaragua hosted many old friends and partners. However, there were some new faces as well. Dr. Eliezer Lappots is the executive director of Health Horizons International, our partner organization in the Dominican Republic focused on empowering local leaders, strengthening primary health care quality, and promoting public health. Apart from an accomplished resume at a young age, Eliezer is a joy to be around. From his master class presentation of the Social Determinants of Health to his wit and sense of humor, we were grateful and honored to welcome him to Nicaragua.
