With the help of Sister Grace Yap OSF, of the Franciscan Ministries, our first mission was a success. We saw over 600 patients in various inner city clinics in Kingston, Jamaica. We treated a variety of diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, infections and gynecological illnesses. We performed 12 successful benign gynecological surgeries at St. Joseph’s Hospital. This trip initiated the birth of Medicine in Action.
