Location: Calca, Peru

Word spreads quickly in Peru! After a busy day in Calca yesterday, we saw almost twice as many patients today! However, we created a more efficient system for intake and were able to trouble shoot and problem we faced. In addition, our medical students shadowing physicians were able to focus on their history and physical exam taking skills. We saw everything from blurry vision, gastritis, musculoskeletal pain, to even more severe cases of bronchiolitis. The people of Peru have been very kind and understanding. We feel incredibly appreciative of their patience. Tomorrow we will be seeing patients close by in Urubamba!

Today approximately 230 patients were seen in the medical clinic and the eye clinic.
