New Latin American Medical School in Cuba
The inauguration of a new Latin American School of Medicine (ELAM) in Cuba favors about five hundred Bolivian students from the regions of Santa Cruz and Potosi.

The students will soon begin classes for their formation as doctors, and will be a great support to their country since the department of Santa Cruz is the largest in the country.

The student body includes about a hundred indigenous youths and the school has 15 classrooms, computer laboratories, comfortable dormitories, a theater and emergency health facilities.

ELAM is named in honor of Reinaldo Naranjo Leyva, an airport worker who died trying to control, with his body, the explosion of a grenade placed by terrorists attempting to hijack a plane in flight.

This is the third school of its kind in Cuba, for a total enrollment of 364 students from seven countries that include Venezuela, Ecuador, Honduras, Saint Lucia and Bolivia.
