El Salvador Trip Staffed and Ready to Launch

Friday, May 2, 2014

Heart Care International's interdisciplinary team of pediatric cardiac medical experts are poised to return to San Salvador's Bloom Hospital for the 10th year. Along with the in-country medical experts, Heart Care International will work side-by-side to identify the children who will be candidates for heart surgery the week of May 19th. In addition, the team will offer a 13 course lecture series to benefit the in-country medical team in topics ranging from jet ventilators to the control and prevention of infections. This series is offered as part of Heart Care International's Allison Scholarship for Education and helps ensure that HCI and the host country medical professionals are in synch with their treatment and management of patient care. Sponsored by the Crowne Plaza San Salvador, the lecture series will be offered in the comfort of the hotel setting and includes breakfast and lunch for all attendees. As a special addition this year, Heart Care International will have the benefit of an award-winning documentary film team, lead by David Baugnon and Ed Holt, who will be capturing the impact of Heart Care International's magic. Film release TBD. Stay tuned...
