Clinic preparation – Tarek Obeid

Arriving to Iquitos at last!

On day 5, we transitioned from Lima to Iquitos, Peru. Looking down more than 20,000 feet in altitude, my colleagues and I viewed the beautiful mountains and trees in the jungle. Once settled, we made a trip out to the clinic where we organized many different areas of specialties’ including: Pediatric, Dermatology, Dentistry, Pharmacy, and General medicine clinic. We all worked extraordinarily hard in setting up the clinic we will be actively partaking in for the next few days in assisting the wonderful people of Peru. We ended the latter part of our day enjoying cultural music and dance as well as a tasty dinner with the mayor of Iquitos. We all greatly appreciated the warming welcome we received since arriving at Iquitos.
