Frederik & Mary open health education centre in Odense

Today Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary have visited Odense in Funen to open the new facilities of the Centre for Advanced Health Education. Frederik and Mary arrived in Odense early in the morning and checked in to the Hotel Knudsens Gård with Christian. The Crown Prince Couple have been greeted enthusiastically by hundreds, with many waving Danish flags and Mary happily greeted them right back! Frederik and Mary attended a reception at the Odense City Hall before going to the Centre for Advanced Health Education to inaugurate its new facilities. Little Christian stayed behind at the hotel while his parents were busy. But Christian was by no means forgotten as the students had made him a present, a parachute and a couple of balls to play with, accepted for him by Mary and Frederik.

The centre concentrates on education in four areas: occupational therapy, physiotherapy, radiography and nursing. It is the first centre of this kind in Denmark, combining these areas of advanced professional health care disciplines together in one institution. The centre is beginning a new era in new premises and this arrangement for the Crown Prince Couple to inaugurate it has been highly anticipated since August of last year. From Fyens Stiftstidende
