"In the beginning everything was like it"
I am a MD who is the Chairman of The Health Tourism International Chamber of Commerce, the President of the American Society of Thermalism and Climatology, and the Chief of the Hydrology and Medical Climatology Research Institute. I’m also the Program Chairperson for the Master of Science Program in Thermalism and Medical Climatology Health Services Research and Director of
the Thermal America fellowship Clinical and Health Services Research Training Program funded by the American Society of Thermalism and Climatology, and Director of the Thermal America fellow- ship in Thermalism and Climatology funded by the American Society of Thermalism. As an expert in clinical trials, I preside over the research on the use of Thermalism in prevention and treatment of several diseases.
I am a well-established meteorologist and clinical researcher with a strong background in multidisciplinary research, including clinical trials, outcomes research, and population-based studies. I’m also an international leader in the Thermalism and medical climatology. I developed a method of assessing the prognostic impact of thermal cure in pathological conditions; the ‘ Silega TA’ ; I lead a multidisciplinary research team that performs clinical trials, outcomes research, and population- based studies. My work has focused on developing predictive models in chronic illnesses and using the models to develop interventions to improve outcomes in inpatients and outpatients. I have also translated basic theories from economics and psychology to develop individually tailored strategies that patients with chronic illnesses can employ to successfully change their health risk behaviors.
I have designed clinical trials of mind-body interventions as well as behavioral interventions and have developed new measures of clinical phenomena. Additionally, I’ve also focuses on prognosis and interventions in chronic illness and on developing clinical research methodology in clinical re- search. I was the principal architect of the use lithium water in suicide prevention, psychiatric patient and combat of the crime. I am the principal investigator of a program project consisting of three randomized trials involving over 1200 patients evaluating the impact of thalassotherapy and self-affirmation on the ability of patients with chronic cardiopulmonary disease to change their behavior. I’m also currently studying the effect of lithium water use in the prevention of crime and its use as a main element in psychotic disorders and the prevention of suicide. I’m also the leader in
research on the combined use of magnetic and medicinal mineral waters in the treatment of osteo- arthritis, spinal cord injuries, dermatological conditions and anti-aging factor. I have also had a life- long research interest in psycho social interventions that build self-efficacy.
I lead the Research Methodology Thermal America, a multidisciplinary group of faculty around the globe from different divisions, departments and institutions engaged in clinical trials, outcomes re- search, and population-based studies. I have extensive experience in investigating development and for the last 25 years has implemented a systematic strategy for this purpose.
I received my medical degree from The Higher Institute of Medical Science University of Havana. I completed my Rehabilitation and Physical Medicine residency at the Surgery and Medical Research Center (CIMEQ) in Havana.
I am an International Serial Entrepreneur with more than 15 years of cross-functional/cross- cultural management experience. I have won contracts, and I’ve also prepared successful business plans and PPMs for private funding. I have founded and successfully managed 5 businesses in different industries.
