If anybody works for a dermatologist or knows of one or IS one who might like to volunteer for ONE WEEK in Belize in November please let me know.
A family emergency has required our dermatologist to cancel his trip this year.
The Belize MIssion Project is a dental/medical mission that is in its 20th year and is set up to provide dental and health care to the people of Belize who can't afford these services - in the cities, the remote Mayan villages and on the islands.
It is a rewarding week among wonderful people who come from all over the US and Canada to volunteer. Dermatology is very similar to what we see here in the US (melasma, psoriasis, alopecia, & vitiligo with more scabies, fungus and a leshmaniasis or two thrown in for good measure).
The Belizeans are friendly and appreciative, the country is beautiful, food is delicious and there is some time for activities like fishing and snorkeling too! English is the official language and one US dollar is equal to two belizeans.
We headquarter on Ambergris Caye and travel via Tropic Air to various parts of the country.
Keeping my fingers crossed that a willing dermatologist is out there.
