Assist in providing community and medical services to those in need while gaining global health experience and immersing yourself in a new culture!
ISL serves small villages in the high-altitude coffee region of central Colombia which are too far for regional hospitals to provide healthcare on a regular basis. These farm-working communities mostly live an agrarian subsistence living off the land and harvesting coffee.
Colombia has both Global Health and Nursing teams traveling year round.
