See you on Monday, March 18th, doors open at 6:30pm. Program will start at 7pm.

The Ukrainian Medical Association of North America (UMANA), founded in 1950, is a voluntary non-profit association of professionals licensed to practice in their areas of health care in the United States and Canada. UMANA’s objectives are: 1. Unite health care professionals of Ukrainian descent, who share an interest in promoting the health of Ukrainians; 2. Share medical knowledge and scientific research with emphasis on aspects unique to Ukrainians.

The Co-Pilot Project (CPP) is an initiative within Razom for Ukraine that aims to address the significant deficit in high-quality neurosurgical and spine surgery training in Ukraine, a country of 45 million people in eastern Europe. Just as a co-pilot acts as another set of eyes and ears for the pilot, our mission is to send surgeons from North America to mentor and aid Ukrainian surgeons through difficult cases.​
