2017 marked another successful trip to the Kausay Wasi Clinic in Coya, Peru with team members primarily from Newton Wellesley Hospital. Dr. Vinod Narra, a general surgeon from North Shore Medical Center was an amazing addition to the team.

We had four team members who are bilingual this year – Emma, Iolanda, Catherine and Martha. This was a key element in providing wonderful patient care.
