We then travelled northeast to one of Israel's research and development centres in Yokne'am where we were given an introduction to the work of a medical technology firm, Given Imaging. Given's work has the potential to make endoscopic examinations more easily and comfortably available by means of a pill-sized camera that broadcasts its transit of the gastrointestinal system to a small belt-pack wore by the patient. With the debates in Canada regarding how to deliver healthcare to an aging population, this company's work has considerable promise.
From Yokne'am we travelled in deteriorating weather conditions to Mount Carmel. At the summit of Mount Carmel is a Carmelite monastery from which it is possible to get a panoramic view of a vast part of Israel --- if it is not pouring with rain!
