Dear Prof Shifman, my friend Efim
I want to congratulate you and thank you for the most wonderful conference in Moscow. The organisation and running of the academic content was superb. It was wonderful to meet and speak with colleagues in Russia and see such interest and enthusiasm for this most important area of practice. You are creating a fantastic legacy of improving care for women in Russia.
One doctor alone improves care for a a few patients, a doctor who understands the importance of education and collaboration improves care for thousands of patients!
Thank you also for your gracious and kind hospitality in Moscow. It was wonderful to see what a beautiful city Moscow is.
I am very much looking to the  ongoing collaboration between the OAA, yourself and the Russian Society.
My warmest regards to you and Mrs Shifman.
