Ecuador 2017- Chimborazo Province
This spring we will be returning Ecuador to continue the care provided in previous trips. We will be partnering with the organization FIBUSPAM, which has a central clinic located in the Chimborazo region of Ecuador, but also reaches needs throughout the country with mobile clinics. Our goal in partnering will be to bring the highest quality of medical care to the people and communities with consistent need and limited access to care providers, while developing an ongoing relationship with the people and the in-country organization. We are especially excited about the diversity of skill in our team, including 5 physicians from four different specialties, Temple medical students, 3 public health students from the University of Pittsburgh, a team of physical therapists, and translators/supporting staff.
