The group plans to host dental and medical clinics, hygiene and nutritional education sessions in the schools, and latrine building as well as Bible story time with the children. The trip also highlights the importance of World Health Day on April 7, which commemorates the founding of the World Health Organization. “Public health can be positively impacted with even seemingly small steps by showing God’s love through our actions and by teaching and empowering the Guatemalan people to help themselves,” said Dr. Janousek. “I’m very passionate about mission work and am continuing to learn best practices to improve the heal
