The biennial Israel Bonds Maimonides Medical Delegation visited Israel March 10-14 for an insider’s look at Israel’s world-leading advances in science and medicine. Led by Dr. Burt Herbstman and Dr. Andrew Hutter, participants experienced technological breakthroughs in medical research, artificial intelligence and rehabilitation.

The delegation opened with remarks by Minister of Science, Technology and Space Ofir Akunis. In referencing Israel’s recent lunar launch, which, upon mission completion, will make Israel only the fourth nation to land a craft on the moon, Minister Akunis said, “This is one of the greatest events in the history of the State of Israel.”
