Dr. J. Eltora Bennett was the principal architect. She had attended the November 2008 laparoscopy training session at Tapion hospital in St. Lucia. At each of the subsequent four sessions her patients accompanied her to receive laparoscopic management of their fibroids in order to have less post-operative pain and a quicker recovery. But Dr. Bennett who was aware of her patients’ reluctance to make the trip to St. Lucia decided to provide the services at Bayview Hospital in Barbados. So after completing the sixth session in St. Lucia, Dr. Bennett and her colleague Dr. Geoffrey LaFond formed the company CariGES to do just that. She had made comprehensive preparations that included Bayview hospital management and staff, the Government sector, the Insurance Industry, professional colleagues, friends and the media. The ceremonial function was held at the Sandy Lane Hotel!

  1. There is not much to debate for sexual harassment issues as it is universally unlawful practice especially in the workplace.
    I was a victim of such like and still have not been compensated via exemplary damages and my life trashed.
    I would think that sexual harassment is not an esteemed value system of the caricom community and anthropological premptive insight is not really necessary to quantum such damages even with the sentiments of the New York convention.I would hope some one gets in touch with me as I also hold accountable Gerald B. Emtage/Emptage in his so called capacity as a medical accessory to the caricom community.
    I really want to forget this ordeal which I have had to bear for over ten years. I would hope that I would get some genuine sympathy from well wishers and be cooperated to resolve.Fatwa would be necessary as bounty killers are rife.Thank you and peace always.
