Today we would like to express our gratitude to the two OI surgeons Dr. Aldofredo Santana (Venezuela) and Dr. Carlos Pargas (USA) for taking a week off their normally busy schedule and travel all the way from their home countries to Lagos, Nigeria as part of the OIFE Flying OI Expert programme.

The 2023 project was organized by Osteogenesis Imperfecta Foundation, Nigeria (OIFN) and financially supported by the OIFE and donations from members of the Norwegian OI-group NFOI. But without the dedicated doctors who volunteered to teach advanced OI surgery and do educational activities to increase the knowledge on OI in Nigeria – it would not happen. Thank you so much!
