On 26 October, 2018,the guest speaker was Dr.  Samvel Baghoyan, an expert from  “Astghik” Medical Center. Mr. Baghoyan has an experience of working as a cardiologist at “Erebuni” Medical Center. He has graduated from Yerevan State Medical University as a cardiologist and has been trained as an anesthesiologist.

During the meeting, Dr. Samvel Baghoyan introduced a practice of medical insurance, that can be used also by the Syrian refugees’ community. Considering the financial challenges of Syrian-Armenian refugees, a social package is being planned for Syrian refugees that will allow them to receive free healthcare services.
