Orange County, FL– Mayor Richard Crotty and the National Center for Simulation are hosting a forum to promote modeling, simulation and training technology, already flourising in Orange County, for our region’s blossoming healthcare industry. “With the advent of “Medical City” at Lake Nona and the presence in our community of world-class hospitals, it seems only logical to promote the use of MS&T to train our healthcare professionals in a manner that has been so successful for the military,” said Mayor Crotty.
