In April, Dr. Bryan Sauer led a UVA Medical Team to Guatemala to provide treatment to the people there. As a result, dozens of people in Guatemala are now getting the medical care that they need from doctors and nurses from UVA. Another group will head down this November and then again in March of 2020.
