Hello!

I think there are plenty of opportunities for you out there. Many clinicians are dependent on the type of information that you can obtain. This can be challenging in low resource settings and clinicians need to focus on medicine and “what is in front of them”. They can’t always see forest and depend on social workers and public health servants to obtain needed data.
I’m impressed that you are looking for something beyond casual volunteering.
I’ve been involved in various levels in rural Guatemala for about 5 years. Please feel free to hit me up. I’m returning to Guatemala in a few weeks where there is limited access to communication, and I don’t visit this site often, but I’m happy to converse about this whenever it’s possible.
