New Partners in Guatemala

In March, MSPP president Terri Cranmer met with Miguel Ugalde, Coordinator of International Academic Relations at the Universidad Raphael Landivar (URL) in Guatemala City. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the possibility of a partnership between MSPP and URL. During the meeting several areas of possible collaboration were identified and discussed. The university has agreed to allow their nursing students to travel with our medical teams. The idea of their nursing students working alongside doctors and nurses from the United States was an opportunity that they couldn’t pass up. There is also interest from some of their medical students to participate in our clinic days. We will continue to discuss other areas of possible collaboration. Thanks Miguel, John Feegel and the Universidad Rafael Landivar.
