Day 1: Zanskar Medical Camp 2018

We are off to Zanskar for our next Medical Camp. We have a great team from the USA and Brazil and Switzerland! And, of course, our Zanskari team!

At the request of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, this year we are moving forward on INTEGRATED MEDICINE. We have 2 wonderful Tibetan doctors joining us: Dr. Kalsang and Dr. Yangdrol, both from California, and the Integration team is headed by our Dr. Georgia Milan.

This year we have women’s health, general medicine, pediatrics, a radiologist who will do and TEACH ultrasound, lab tech, massage therapy, physical therapy and reiki.

The Brazilian Medical Team is coming for 7 days with medical specialists. YEAH BRAZIL!!!!! We are so grateful for their collaboration with this project.

We have purchased a great computer and will begin video conferencing between Padum and the Leh and Kargil Hospitals. We are also getting a handle on setting up and working with electronic medical records.

We have a blood chemistry analyzer rented from a drug company and have purchased a Hgb and Hct analyzer.

With donations from our Swiss friends Naveen and Janne we have purchased a new colposcope for women’s cancer screening. A donation from Cheetah Computers in Florida is a dedicated laptop for colposcope. WOW, we are so slick!!!

It is so exciting THANK YOU ALL who have donated to this project.

WE are meeting our goals of providing a sustainable health care facility for these wonderful people.

We would love you to donate one more time to this year’s 2018 Zanskar Medical Camp.
