We are planning a one-week brigade during late January 2020. This will include cardiology clinic and performing percutaneous interventional procedures (15-18 cases). We are not able to offer cardiac surgery during this brigade, but we are working to be able to offer surgery during our Fall 2020 brigade. We are planning to resume taking a small group of American students. A clinical lecture series is also planned. In preparation for our continued work in Leon, we have shipped a large container of medical equipment and supplies to HEODRA.
Further plans for 2020 include another electrophysiology brigade in the summer and a general cardiology and cardiac surgical brigade in the fall. We are hoping to resume our pediatric cardiology program. Plans are being made to continue our primary care activities in Nicaragua, as well.
