AVF Members Abroad - Amigos de Salud

By: Nick Morrison, MD - Founder of Amigos de Salud

Amigos de Salud is a USA-based, non-profit, volunteer medical organization, founded in 1989 by Nick and Terri Morrison that annually brings together a group of nurses, physicians, technologists, and lay volunteers, collecting and/or purchasing medical equipment and supplies and then traveling to developing countries, everyone at their own expense, in order to examine and treat patients by performing diagnostic and interventional procedures. For over 20 years Amigos de Salud have annually led this group of medical volunteers to Central or South America to deliver medical care to the indigent people of Ecuador, Peru, Costa Rica, and most recently Nicaragua.
