Kellie Zawisa – 8/22

Today was a wonderful mix of seeing patients and exploring the Amazon! Some of us started the morning with a bird watching tour, then we headed out on the Amazon Queen to a nearby village about 20 minutes away. Upon arrival onshore we were greeted by crowds of people awaiting to board the boat and receive care. We spent a very busy morning and afternoon treating patients on the boat. As the day went on, more and more patients lined up, some coming by foot and some by small boat. Some patients traveled several hours just to come and receive medical care. Treating the people of the Amazon continues to be an incredibly exciting and humbling experience.
