Following rounds of discussions about the need for establishing the second base for the Health Leaders Association (HLMDI), finally during the MERH Congress in Edinburgh this May (Migration Ethnicity, Race, Health) it was decided that Kia Goolesorkhi would observe possibilities of establishing this base in Belgium (Brussels) or the Netherlands. The timing seemed very appropriate since Kia‘s family had also been seeking opportunities for moving to the Netherlands.
It did happen! Kia has found a place in the heart of Gelderland in the city of Arnhem. He has started teaching at the HAN (Hogeschool van Arnhem en Nijmegen) this semester. Kia can now help bring ENIEC closer to Hungary. Together with a colleague they have commenced a comparative research project regarding the use of advanced Apps for Elderly Care amongst natives and non-natives in Ariozna and Europe.
This could be an exciting topic for our ENIEC community as well.
