One of the privileges of being a health care professional is travelling to other countries to provide care to under served people. So, I have volunteered on several teams with CompassionLink, an organization that serves to provide
HEALTH RESTORED-HOPE SUSTAINED.
Our team giving medical consultations, dental care, and vision exams for eyeglasses.
Visiting the famous Panama Canal
And one of the pleasures of travelling is when our hosts express their appreciation by showing us the local sites and culture. In Panama, of course, that meant a visit to the Panama Canal, an engineering marvel. The landscape and people of Panama are also captivating. Add to that a warm and usually sunny climate, made for an enjoyable and rewarding experience.
