IMCRA report and plan for elderly presented at UN

On October 15th 2015, IMCRA presented its program for extending free native-language medical resources to needy elderly worldwide as part of the 25th International Day of Older Persons held at the ECOSOC chamber at the U.N.

In line with the General Assembly’s initiative on establishing sustainable development inclusive of those aged 65+, the IMCRA program gives smartphone-using refugee families and their medical providers rapid access to expert, culturally-sensitive acute and preventative care in their native language .

The need for the program is profound especially among the refugees from terror in the Middle East. In disrupted environments, children and the elderly suffer most from the loss of what are often already poor levels of health support and minimal preventative care. IMCRA has been using the wealth of multicultural medical expertise in New York City to serve the neediest through the production of streaming video modules on topics ranging from respiratory and cardiovascular health to preventative vaccinations to lifestyle options.

Our psychosocial faculty are also using the system to reach out to those most in danger of neglected post-traumatic sequelae and behavioral disorders arising from the current chaotic world situation.

We have been requested to report on progress at the ECOSOC summit in 2016.  We hope to report both progress and success in an area sadly lacking in resources.  Both the fighters against evil as well as its victims need our help.  Please help us by supporting this good work
