In 2009, CarePartners began organizing medical trips through its sister agency, Community Nursing Services (CNS), to countries where there are less medical services available. Past trips have included Peru, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Philippines, and Guyana.
In these countries CarePartners staff accompanied by doctors, dentists and translators have worked with local Rotary clubs to set up clinics and provide medical care for local families including medications, fluoride treatments, eye glasses, dental extractions, and health counseling. Our staff who participate in the trips have found them to be a great opportunity to give back to those who have much less access to health care than we do and at the same time , make use of skills that our staff have developed as community health care providers. Many CarePartners employees have found participating in the trips to be a life changing experience.
