The Glens Falls Medical Mission has been working with the people of Nueva Santa Rosa, Guatemala, since 1996. We bring general medical care, women's care services, pediatric care and dental care along with a fully stocked pharmacy on each of our 2 missions every year. We provide up to 2000 services to people who have little access to medical care. We work with Guatemalan NGO's and local physicians, dentists and nurses, along with a large group of Guatemalan volunteers. The government's health department, known as SOSEP, works closely with us to ensure that patients we see have appropriate follow up. We accept health professionals and general volunteers for our October and April missions. Contact us at www.gfmmf.org for more information.
