Created for the public television series Visionariesthis 30-minute documentary features the work of our general surgery program. Following a US mission team in Bolivia as well as our Bolivian partner surgeons who provide care year round, this independently produced film is a great portrayal of our mission efforts.

Join us for the premiere and be one of the first to see this new film. After the screening, a panel of missioners will discuss their experiences working in partnership to strengthen the Bolivian health care system and the impact of their work on their personal lives.
