Hello everyone,

Today is departure day, we will be leaving tonight on the red eye to Lima, Peru. The medical mission will focus on Oral & Dental interventions. We are going to Trujillo, Peru located on the coast. The team consists of 2 Dental Md’s, Nurses, Dental Techs, and a Certified Surgical Technologist. I would like to thank all of the surgical processing students and faculty for sterilizing and preparing all of the instrumentation we are taking on trip.  I would also like to thank Carmelo, Domenic, and all of the Berkeley transportation team who are helping us take the medical supplies and equipment to the airport in the snow. I will post pictures and keep blogging the whole trip. Below is an image of one of two portable units we are taking with us. They have suction, irrigation,and drill attachments. Below are images of instrumentation that was processed and we are bringing with us on the mission. Please blog questions !!!! I will post !!!
