Medical Trips

La Mision conducts medical, dental and eye clinics for different villages and towns throughout Guatemala. We do not only care for patients in these places, given medical, dental and eye care attention, but also train health care promoters on basic health care so that they can go back and share the knowledge they gain with their communities. Our "clinic season" is between the months of January and October. During these months, the staff at La Mision, along with volunteer teams from the United States, visit each of the locations. Although a large part of the clinical services occur during clinic season, the La Mision clinical team regularly visits each area throughout the year for follow-up appointments and health care sessions as needed.
