The staff at San Martin de Porres was self-same welcoming of us, and expressed private ~ in having a collaboration with UIC, ideally through the exchange of information between students and residents, in the manner that well as being able to possess residents come to Peru, and also Peruvian residents coming to the US.


We continued our light of ~ to try to visit San Marcos, one more medical school, but unfortunately a part of the medical community had lately passed away and the whole academy attended the funeral services to pay their regards.

There is a fate of opportunity for collaboration and firm among several educational institutions, including UIC, like there is a need for persons health projects benefiting the area because well as primary and specialty services. Mr. Dongo continues to have ~ing truly passionate about his mission and ghost of service once established after his contingency six years ago.


Today is the the ~ time day we spend in Lima under the jurisdiction heading to Yantalo. Lima has been some incredible city from what we’ve observed to this degree far.
