Oscar Cepero, a medical doctor, has practiced medicine in three different countries.
"I've seen different health systems from many perspectives," he said. "I think Nicaragua is going to be a different experience."
Oscar has worked at the Tri-City Medical Center practicing anesthesia since 1999.
Oscar found out about the trip from Dr. Christine Brody. He participated in other medical missions in Peru in the 90s.
He said one of his goals is to be able to set the basis for future medical missions.
"This kind of mission will bring me back to the basics of medical practice and remind me of why I became a physician," he said.
Oscar explained that he knew our team would make an impact on the Nicaraguan community.
"I am aware of the medical needs of a poor country like Nicaragua," he said. "I know that our small contribution will be life changing for the people involved."
