Andean Community Partners began in 2005 when pediatrician Dr. Doug Tate and Professor Ted Johnson developed an interim course at St. Olaf College called Peruvian Medical Experience. For the first two years of the program, 12 premedical and predental students shadowed a surgical team of Children’s Surgical International in Arequipa Peru.
Join us at noon on June 14 at Bourbon Butcher in Farmington, as Dr. Tate takes us on a journey to Peru, where Andean Community Partners now serves 500 to 600 patients annually in their mission to improve the health and well-being of people in Andean communities by focusing on health and infrastructure, while encouraging St. Olaf students to live a life of worth and service.
