Medical teams make a difference!!! You can, too!
Even though many medical teams have gone to the Dominican Republic, we still continue to find many communities that have never seen an American medical team. As we checkout those communities, we find that access to a doctor is not easy and it usually means they have to travel a distance, wait in line and maybe see a doctor. It is a big deal for them to get help.

One of the biggest issues and needs is for continued treatment for conditions such as hypertension. As we gain more medical teams throughout the year, we hope to be able to have these teams provide possible quarterly medical service to these people that have no care. We have immediate need for more teams right now.
The ideal size for a medical team is 15-20 people but we can take teams larger or smaller than that. Our trips include all transportation, meals, lodging, and a day at a resort on your last day. All of this is taken care of from the time you arrive at the airport until the time you leave. We also include some translators (more can be hired at an added trip cost).
Our trip document page contains our Trip Leader’s Guide and Trip members Guide which can help you make your plans. We can also help you find donated or low-cost medicines for your team to dispense. Please give us a call or contact us for more information on available dates and places to serve.
