Dr. Chihab Taleb

Driven by a surgical vocation that appeared at a very young age and after a university course at the Faculty of Medicine in Strasbourg, Doctor Taleb was appointed as an intern in orthopaedic surgery at the University Hospitals of Strasbourg. Doctor Chihab Taleb then specialised in hand surgery in Strasbourg (Pr Liverneaux), Bordeaux (Pr Pelissier) and Lille (Pr Fontaine). Because hand surgery is a complex and extremely varied speciality, Dr Taleb deepened his surgical training by completing a 12-month post-doctoral program in Brazil (Sao Paulo Handcenter), the United States (Shoulder surgery unit, Johns Hopkins Hospital) and Japan (Juntendo University, Tokyo). He was then appointed Head of Clinic at the University Hospitals of Strasbourg. In parallel to his care activity, Dr Chihab Taleb regularly participates in numerous national and international congresses and scientific sessions in the field of hand surgery and wrist arthroscopy as a speaker, expert or trainer. Dr. Chihab Taleb maintains a strong professional link at the national and international level with numerous colleagues.

Marina Laurent

For years, I had a feeling that the way we live is not in tune with our true nature and is not healthy and life-conducive. Therefore, I have been on a journey of transformation toward the unveiling of my "True Self," which eventually enabled me to reconnect with myself, others, and the world. This journey has led me to evolve the way I think, live, eat, interact with people, making me a more spiritual and compassionate being. It has also made me question my professional choices, asking myself even more profound questions: What is my higher purpose? What mark do I want to leave on the planet? How can I contribute to make the world a place?

Yousef Elamrani

Yousef aims to provide bi-directional data exchange between the caresocius users (patients) and the healthcare facility (hospital/clinic). Data is uploaded from the patient to the application to send a treatment request to the clinic. The healthcare facility processes this treatment request and, using the caresocius API, will be able to integrate this patient data into its CRM system (Customer Relationship Management System) in the future.
