Default Help cuban physicians against discrimination

On july 2nd the ECFMG which validates Cuban credentials and grants certifications to foreign physicians announced that they will no longer be doing so for Cuban Physicians or those from Crimea and Sudan. They do not state exactly why and any service requested by a Cuban applicant will be denied , even if it means obtaining a score from a previous exam the physician already paid for and took. We are gathering signatures to send back to ECFMG since this is pure discrimination and a violation of our rights. Thank you
