AMORO celebrated its 4th year under new Presidency

On the 28th of January, at the beautiful conference room at the Hotel de Ville of Beausoleil, it took place the celebration of AMORO's fourth year of existence. AMORO is the Association of Romanian Doctors on the French Riviera, founded in 2013 at the initiative of the Honorary Consul of Romania in the Principality of Monaco, Dr Constantin Turchina, a cardiologist himself, together with an active group of colleagues Romanian doctors, and the goal was to maintain a positive image of Romania and bring part of their know-how into the French society through the acknowledgement and the reputation of this Romanian elite class, and to keep them join, for very pleasant moments, through different activities.

On Saturday, 4 years after the creation, new heads in front of the Association took the horns for a refreshing new start. Dr. Marius Taquet is now the President of the Association with Dr. Constantin Mihai as Vice President, all under the attentive care, energy and support of The Honorary President of AMORO, Dr. Constantin Turchina.

"I wish very much that the AMORO Association would develop and my involvement is the result of the fact that, every time I participated in its meetings, I was simply invaded by unique feelings and emotions that I did not feel and lived in other circumstances. Is that "AMORO sprit" that is spontaneously created and I think it's a great thing to be grown on. In order to realize this requires a collective effort, the participation of each of us, and even if the associative spirit is not necessarily a part of our culture of origin, we have the opportunity to learn from our French friends who know how to cultivate and to bring a high level of excellence", Dr. Marius Taquet, the new President, declared in his inaugural speech.

In addition, he mentioned that AMORO is due to evolve significantly in two directions: first, to improve and expand the IT site so that it contains a maximum of predictable medical and administrative information to which information seekers can have direct access. This way, time devoted to bureaucracy will save time and there will be we the possibility to capitalize on it by giving a useful projector. The second direction is focused on the medical or medical-social side, the base on which the AMORO Association was founded.

"We feel that we have a moral duty towards our compatriots in Romania, many of whom are far from having access to the same quality of healthcare as in France. Thus, we will seek to select with special colleagues in Romania special cases that could not be treated in Romania and, on the other hand, to facilitate access to information on the conditions for reimbursement of medical expenses incurred in France.", Marius Taquet continued.

The President ended in a very fairy note: "We have left behind what is just a beautiful dream so far, because the projects must be ambitious but also realistic. The latter implies a complexity, involvement and high degree of training and its realization will be a real challenge for our Association. It is about the First Congress of Romanian Physicians in France, which I see organized as a transnational bridge between Romania and France and which allow us to create lasting ties between our health systems."

It was an extraordinary evening that went from administrational organization up to a great cultural, entrepreneurial exchange between France and Romania, with the support of the Consulate of Romania in Monaco and the Municipality of Beausoleil, represented this evening by the Vice Mayor of Beausoleil, Mr Gerard Destefanis. Romania was presented from different points of view starting with the desire of the medical specialists to help others and expand their actions up to speakers like Daniela Mariscu who talked about the importance of investing in Romanian villages or Mihai Gabriel who spoke about the notion of time and the importance of its well management.

The ambiance slowly started to embrace another energy filled with Romania spirit. Lucian Neacsu, a Romanian wine producer presented us his wines under flavorful degustation that reminded us of the deep attention to details and senses. The smell of the traditional dish, "sarmale", started to fill the room so it was time to integrate Romanian and French people into a traditional dance: "hora". This dance has a historical and cultural meaning for Romania: behind its national symbol of unification, "hora" has a spiritual side: unleashing energies to a dance similar to the sound of flute waving in the air, the sacred sound of the bells in the villages, the flight of the birds in the sky and the grounding to the land as our sweetest home. It's a connection that could be felt by everyone dancing it. And we have to give the credit to Dr. Constantin Turchina for choosing this one.

Participating with a lot of joy and dancing together with the Vice Mayor of Beausoleil in the traditional "hora", Dr. Constantin Turchina concluded with a lot of satisfaction: "It was a fantastic evening, like always I would said... I saw a lot of friendship... AMORO reached the goal for what it was created: to unite people in joy and harmony, Romanians, doctors, paramedics, children of their families, but also friends of them, or French friends, or lovers of Romania, who are our guests for this kind of evenings where they can discover or learn even more about our country and our traditions, our way of living. I think this evening was a great success and gave a very positive image of us and our integration abroad. Because this is "the" Europe! And that's the future: friendship and interexchange!"

This event organized by the Association AMORO filled its objectives and I believe it gave a new energy to this type of initiatives which we really need nowadays. Being the biggest Romanian Association in France, founded on the basis of the ethic and well intended principles of the medical community, AMORO can be a strong link between the two countries and a launching ramp for new projects. At least, this is what could be felt from the encouraging speeches and communion between people gathered at the event.
