"Scugog helping hands stretch to foreign land" by Dr. Steve Russell (printed in the Port Perry Star)
"From Scugog to the slums of El Salvador" by Dr. Steve Russell (printed in the Port Perry Star).
Check out this story about Dr. Cross and his team (printed in the Milton Canadian Champion):


Every medical-dental trip inevitably involves a camera (certainly more than one) and a high quality video camera.

On the first trip to Honduras we were fortunate to have a camera person with 25 years experience! The result was terrific footage of the team in action. On this last team trip to El Salvador, we had another experienced camera person so we acquired good footage and were able to create the following video:

The video and an accompanying slide show are give to the team members at a reunion event. The most recent reunion was held in Port Perry, ON on June14th. A considerable number of our team professionals reside in "The Port".

Please look for new posts about future team trips ... and thank you for partnering with us.
