A MELA Milestone

The Xth International Course on Acute Care

A MELA Team of 20 Volunteers made the trip to Cochabamba for the Tenth Course on Acute Care given with our co-sponsor, Mano a Mano Bolivia, March 28-30. There were approximately 300 Bolivian Doctors, Nurses, and Dentists attending the course. For me, it was a fantastic experience! In addition, some of our team were able to join a Jornada de Salud (Mobile Clinic) in the community of Tables Monte and see patients in rural Bolivia.  Other team members were able to visit a clinic constructed with MELA support, and and learn about the challenges of providing care in a resource poor country.

It was not all work. There was still time for many of our team members to visit some of the landmarks and interesting sights of Bolivia, like the Salar (salt flats), Toro Toro, Tarija - the wine country, and other spots with historical and cultural interests.

Many Thanks to this awesome group and Mano a Mano Bolivia for their participation and hard work to make this another successful trip!

We are all looking forward to the next Course in 2018!
