Lifebox Volunteer Opportunity

Ten volunteers needed for a 5-day mission

Central America - Nicaragua — (May 20, 2013) 

Lifebox Volunteer Opportunity
The GHO Committee is kicking off Lifebox training in Central America with a first trip planned for Nicaragua in November 2013. Thanks to the generosity of the California Society of Anesthesiologists, all pulse oximeters needed to fill the gap in Nicaragua have been purchased and will be delivered, along with training, to anesthesia providers throughout the country.

Ten volunteers are needed for this 5-day training. If you are interested in participating, please fill out the application. Also join us for the Train the Trainers Workshop at the ANESTHESIOLOGY™ 2013 annual meeting this October.
