Stu Jones Mission Trip to Panama In July 2014, I had the privilege to travel to Panama with the medical mission team “Floating Doctors.” The group is based in Boco Del Toro and serves many local and some not-so-local communities including Solarte, Loma Espina, and Cerro Brujo to name a few. Also, the team takes care of a local “nursing home,” which is basically a state run facility for the homeless and mentally ill. During my week in Panama, I treated many people with all types of problems including general dysentery, infections both viral and bacterial, pregnancy related issues and
