Shalom Foundation Annual Pediatric Surgery Dental Mission

Shalom Foundation, Moore Pediatric Surgery Center, Dental Mission Trip

I am the anesthesiology team leader for this mission trip for past 3 years. We go to Guatemala City every August, operate on approximately 100 children in 4 days (dental surgery for pediatric patients). I bring additional anesthesiology attendings and VUMC CRNAs as anesthesia providers. Belmont sends pharmacy students.
