Setting Sail Toward Healthcare Savings - Cruise Shipping Miami Hosts Medical Tourism Association

Miami, FL, March 19, 2012 --( Cruise Shipping Miami - the premier conference of the global cruise industry - hosted Medical Tourism Association President and Founder Renee-Marie Stephano Esq. at the Miami Beach Convention Center. Stephano’s presentation, “Health & Medical Tourism: What Fits In The Global Cruise Industry - The Diversity of Medical Tourism and the Segments of Interest for Cruise Ships” was viewed by many as a huge success.

The panels, organized and moderated by Dr. Mohammed Saeme M.D./Ph.D - a world renowned expert on maritime health and Chairman of Magic Discovery Group – brought together industry leaders from all over the world to focus on shipboard medical facilities/technologies and medical tourism as it relates to luxury cruising.

“Incorporating wellness into the cruise industry provides a unique opportunity to allow people to not only go on excursions to see things on the outside, but to take the time to reflect and improve what’s on the inside.” – Renee-Marie Stephano Esq.

Mrs. Stephano's presentation was an excellent compliment to an earlier presentation given by George Foyo's - VP & Chief Administrative Officer of Baptist Health, South Florida. Mr. Foyo’s presentation, "Crew Medical Services From A Shore Side Medical Provider Perspective: Medical Services In Support to The Cruise Industry in South Florida,” covered precisely how the cruise industry is increasing their bottom line while simultaneously providing world-class health services to their staff/crew-members.
