TREK NEPAL’S SHANGRI-LA AND GIVE BACK IN OCTOBER 2018

TSUM VALLEY MEDICAL MISSION is recruiting optometrists for its October 2018 health camps in this remote Himalayan valley described by veteran hikers as the “Shangri-La of Nepal.” Family practice clinicians round out the medical team, including mission leader, Rachel Frazin, nurse practitioner. The Tsumbas, as they call themselves, are gracious and grateful, a reflection of their Tibetan Buddhist culture and remote locale. The trek is 25 days with ten days of care provision along the way. Our trek company manages all the details from airport pickup to departure for the flight home. Porters carry our belongings.

OD needed in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, March 4-11

As you might know I’ve been doing some service work for the last few years in Haiti with some of our Nurse Practitioner students. One of my colleagues who has a small non-profit also doing work there is traveling to Port-Au-Prince with a group of nurses and has asked if I know an optometrist who might be willing to join them between March 4-11.    If you know anyone who might be willing to go along, let me know and I can put them in touch with my friend Anne St. Juste.
