Working on behalf of International Medical Programs, an Albany-based organization that delivers state-of-the-art medical information to doctors around the world, Hudson Valley Community College's Viking Video Technologies transmitted a two-day conference May 25 and 26 to doctors at Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland.

The satellite transmission originated in the college's Bulmer Telecommunications Center and included a two-day interactive program on Acute Coronary Syndromes. Physicians in Krakow, Poland were able to participate in the conference, which delivered continuing education for internists and cardiologists.

Dr. Anthony Tartaglia, the principal of International Medical Programs (IMP), said the effort is part of a federal budget allocation secured by U.S. Representative Michael McNulty to explore the best ways to disseminate continuing education to medical professionals around the world. IMP also has worked with physicians in Nicaragua and the country of Georgia in the former Soviet Union.
