US Blockade against Cuba Is a Sin, American Physician Says

By Reina Magdariaga Havana, Sep 21 (Prensa Latina) The U.S. economic war on Cuba is a sin, and it has no sense whatsoever, said an American doctor participating at the 7th International Conference, PsychoHabana 2018 in Havana.

The policy of economic, financial and trade blockade has been in force for more than 50 years and it has only achieved making the island’s people suffer, specialist in internal medicine, Allison Schachter, told Prensa Latina.

I hope that sooner or later everything will change, she said during the second day of the meeting, in which representatives from around 10 countries are participating. In the United States the most progressive people are very motivated to change the state of affairs, which I consider to be a disgrace, the New York expert said.

Schachter participated in the session dedicated to the authentically Cuban psychotherapeutic method, Psycho-Ballet, about which she expressed great joy when she saw the ability with which young people with special needs perform musical pieces.

I do not know whether there is experience of something similar in my country, but I would be interested -for being a doctor specializing in patients with HIV/AIDS- to be capable of contributing to their quality of life, she stated.
