Summer Trip

Next summer, June 1-9, 2019, the LUCOM Office of Clinical Collaboration and Education will take a team of student-doctors, physicians, therapists, educators, Spanish students, counselors, pastors, family members, and other healthcare professionals to provide care in Guatemalan villages. 

The focus of the trip will be to visit impoverished villages in Guatemala where we will provide healthcare for the underserved populations in cooperation with local healthcare professionals. The specialties offered will be General Medicine, Ophthalmology, and others. Assistance with supplies, activities for the children, patient navigation, among other tasks are more than appreciated. If you know of anyone interested in translation, medicine, or ministering to children, then please forward this email to them or have them contact us directly.
