This will be a demanding mission, requiring top physical condition to reach remote communities along an uncommon route stretching across the Cordillera Vilcabamba and arriving at the lost citadel, Machu Picchu. The trek involves 8 days to visit 4 rural communities (off the more touristed Inca trail) delivering medical and dental care.
The inhabitants of these villages lack resources and options for meeting their ever-important health needs, allowing illnesses to go untreated. We are seeking doctors, dentists, optometrists, nurses and other medical professionals to help run free clinics for all. Although diagnoses and treatments will only be provided by qualified professionals, a medical background is not required to participate. Non-medical and/or student support is greatly needed and encouraged.
