Urgent Call for Physicians to Join July Medical Team

Doctors are needed for our medical mission to Tarapoto, Peru, July 9-19, 2015.  The team is almost full. We are open for two or more doctors.
We will serve in three villages outside of the city of Tarapoto.  We will be working for six days, two days in each village.  The villages are Morales, Atumpampa and LaBanda.     Atumpampa has a clinic and they have an area we will work in.  LaBanda is a newer village and takes about a half hour to get to by mototaxis.  This will be our biggest challenge.  
The needs of the communities are:  upper respiratory, allergies, parasites, arthritis, urinary tract infections, high BP in pregnant women, infections of the stomach, skin diseases and cavities.  They will also be testing for HIV.  We will be doing fluoride treatments for children.  There is some TB in the area.  I do not know the stats on HIV or TB. 
The clinics must have two campaigns a month so they are happy to have us join them.  They will need to know the makeup of our team as soon as possible so they can plan accordingly.   Our greatest need is doctors and a dentist if possible.  There will be local doctors and dentists taking part in the campaign.  I will need to know very soon regarding doctors as I must send their license  to Dr. Carban for verification.  I will also need documentation  for nurse practitioners and for the nurses too.
