    Olga has a new request for funding, training courses in Poland for two NBH rehabilitologists.

  10. Success: anti-Flu Vaccine for NBH & KrBH 2016

    Winter brings not only holidays, presents and lots of fun by outdoors games with the snow but also lots of extra worries for the doctors because it is the season of viruses and flus.
