March 2006 Tulsa Medical Team


On March 31, 2006, a team of faculty, residents, and medical students from the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Oklahoma – Tulsa arrived at the Mission of Hope clinic in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. During the week that followed, every patient who came to the mission was examined. No one was turned away!

Normally, we are able to attend about 100 patients each day, but there are usually more than 100 waiting in line each morning to get in. With the team from Tulsa, we were able to set up extra exam rooms and take care of everyone. This was a great blessing for our patients!
