Dr. Andrei will be interviewd by OMNI TV News.
Dr. Andrei is a practising paediatrician who lives in Calgary, Alberta.  He completed medical school in his native country –   Romania – where he experienced first hand the dissolution of the Eastern Bloc. After some time spent in hospital and general practice in Romania he moved to France for a residency position in paediatric.
Upon completion of residency, Dr. Andrei then came to Canada for a Fellowship in Neonatology, a Paediatric subspecialty dealing with newborn medicine. That was fourteen years ago and since then he has worked in the area of specialties related to neonatal and paediatric intensive care with a stint in office and hospital general paediatric practice.
The diversity of his interests is shown in cultural practices that include meditation, the fine arts and in particular poetry, classical western and Indian music (particularly classical Indian flute),  world literature and gnostic scriptures.
Furthermore, he follows closely the intricate web of world affairs and international relations and enjoys activities such as soccer, tennis and the outdoors.
Perhaps his long lasting interest in international seminars related to meditation manifests his passion for integrating his professional side with the wellness that comes from the blending and diversity of so many aspects that life has to offer.
This could be a path to explore not only for himself, but just as importantly for others…
