Prominent Panamanian scientists took part; a group who have contributed to the fight against COVID 19 with hard work and tenacity. Among them, we can mention Drs. Sandra Pérez (Virologist), Mairim Solís (mesenchymal cells), Ricardo Aguilar (research with convalescent plasma), and Alicia Torres (study of respirators made in Panama).
In the area of technology, Captain Rainiero Salas, a Panama Canal pilot, shared his experience in the logistics of handling ships with patients infected with COVID; Christian Schwartz and Yeorleny Saavedra, on Panama's contribution to global logistics during the pandemic.
Important exponents of Panamanian culture such as Alfredo Hidrovo, Jean Decort, Edwar “Chakatín” Castillo, Mayra Rowe and Hugo Víctor Rodríguez could not be absent from our program. Through interactive workshops they demonstrated that even in times of contingencies, we are able to reinvent ourselves, fulfill our dreams and continue building our homeland.
