Our hotel is lovely!!! AC, wifi from some areas, hot water, they keep feeding us, and fresh squeezed orange juice. Today we had a team meeting this morning. I amazed at the dedication already of the on site Bolivia MMI team that sets everything up for our arrival. They include a nurse with a masters degree, a female doctor, an optometrist, some translators, another physician, bus driver and some logistics team members. And they all look about 30 years old! So young and dedicated to helping their people receive medical care.
Our North American team consists of an OR nurse, an ICU nurse, an nurse anaesthetist, 3 general surgeons, 3 general helpers and me. Dr. Matt is our team lead and is a bit ADD, totally hilarious, and can multi- task like nobody. Should be a great week!
