Two doctors left Sunday night for the Republic of Nauru in the Micronesian Pacific Ocean on a first-ever Israeli mission to examine and treat the local population. The government of Nauru asked Israel's Foreign Ministry to find doctors willing to take part in such a project, and Dr. Danny Yardeni and Dr. Hadar Yardeni agreed to go. The couple, he a pediatric surgeon at Ha'emek Hospital in Afula and she a pediatrician and deputy medical director in the northern district of Maccabi Health Services, will be on the islands for two months, the Israel Medical Association reported. Dr. Hadar Yardeni will give advice on health promotion and disease prevention and pediatric care, while Danny Yardeni will perform surgery on the islands, which have 7,000 children out of 13,000 residents.
