After several successful missions, we have been invited back to work with Casa de Salud Santiago for two missions in April. Each year we see more and more patients, and in May 2015 our team saw more than 800 patients in one week. We look forward to continuing to be a support to the community while also strengthening the health infrastructure by working side by side with local physicians and health staff. Beneficiaries of our most recent service trip have shared that they are already encouraging friends and family to seek medical attention for specialty care and long overdue surgeries.
This year we aim to accommodate more volunteers and provide more specialties through two back-to-back missions. This is also creates an opportunity to identify surgical cases that can be treated the following week and also provide a week for follow-up treatment for patients recovering from surgery.
We welcome volunteers of all backgrounds and have received requests for the following specialties:
- Internal Medicine
- Family Medicine
- Plastic Surgery
- General Surgery
We hope that you will join us this year! If you are interested in joining us, reach out by filling out the form with your name and the best contact method to reach you and please share our mission dates widely with friends, family and colleagues who want to participate.
