Future Plans
We brought 30 Penn State student/resident and 5 faculty to Panama in April 2018 for our annual global health mission trip and collaboration with the University of Panama Medical School. We met and worked with Drs Cosme and Mosquera during this follow up trip to Panama.

Via our MOU. ‘Memorandum of Understanding’ that we established between Penn State and the Univ of Panama, we will host additional residents/students from Panama in the future.
