Volunteer: Dorothy Liu-Barbaro - Cusco, Peru / Dates: May 5 - May 30, 2014 Volunteered: Centro de Salud/Medical volunteer
"Volunteering with A Broader View in Cusco was a wonderful experience, as a doctor. I learned a lot about the Peruvian healthcare system and appreciated positive and negative aspects of it. I enjoyed working at both a private hospital and the public clinic and learned how healthcare resources are allocated in a system very different from ours in the USA. I learned how important the family system is here in Peru and was pleased to see how patients often had multiple family members stay with them during their hospital stay. These family members were instrumental in purchasing medications and seeing to their families needs".
