There is a very high level of respect for the physicians and the work they do to serve their communities here in Costa Rica. During my week working in the outpatient hematology/oncology clinic, I had the pleasure of working with and learning from Dra. Muñoz. I witnessed her operate at maximum efficiency each day to see as many of the seemingly unlimited patients as possible. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have been able to immerse myself in the language and culture of Costa Rica. The opportunity to observe the practice of medicine and learn from the outstanding clinicians at HNN is an experience that I am absolutely certain has improved my understanding of the myriad illness affecting children here in Costa Rica and those that I may care for in my during my career.

This was an incredible experience to meet one of the families of our partners and get to be in a deeper, more intimate setting with her. Seeing the family interact and their excitement to meet us was so touching.
