Volunteer Placement(s):

Participants have the opportunity to participate in a 7-day medical mission where more than 1,000 low-income patients living in human developments are seen over the course of our stay. On these missions, participants from various health programs have the opportunity to work together with Peruvian, American, and Canadian physicians, nurses, dentists, and other health agents, to address urgent care, triage, diagnose and treat primary complaints. Participants will also participate in the organization and tracking of the pharmacy’s inventory, prepping it for its daily use at each campaign location.
