WASHINGTON, April 7 (Itar-Tass) —— A group of Russian cardiologists has arrived in the United States to study experience of the US health system. Chief Doctor of the District Cardiologic Clinic “Center of diagnostics and cardio-vascular surgery” of Ygra (city of Syurgut) Irina Urvantseva told ITAR-TASS about her impressions of the trip and its program on Thursday.

According to Urvantseva, the Russian delegation has already visited six clinics in the city of Cleveland (Ohio) where a round-table meeting was held.
