KSB Hospital Announces Medical Mission Trip

KSB Board Chairman Doug Lee had several goals when he entered his position atop KSB Hospital’s Board of Directors in January, 2017.  Continue to improve quality, focus on community health improvement… and put into place a travel medicine program.

After a year of running down alleys leading nowhere, I am thrilled to announce the first Travel Medicine Mission Trip for KSB Hospital.

Beginning April 14th and continuing until April 22nd, nine members of the KSB Family will travel to Cusco, Peru.  As part of the medical campaign in Cusco, our group will aid in treating and educating patients and providing basic checkups and treatments to members of the community.  Working alongside local professionals, our team will help distribute vitamins and other medications, and deliver health education information to children and adults.

This mission is intended to be the first of what will hopefully be two trips per year.  Future experiences will be offered to KSB employees and board members.

Attendees in April will be:

Julie Ammon – Social Worker

Luke Herbert – Pharmacist

Dr. Appenheimer

Dr. Nag

Linda Clemen – Nurse/Administration

Dr. Reckamp

Marissa Frost – Nurse

Dave Schreiner – Administration

Doug Lee – Board Member
