Event to Take Place Friday February 8th, 2008

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif., Sept. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The International Medical Alliance, Inc. of Rancho Mirage, will host its first annual Gala, "The South American Extravaganza" February 8, 2008. Honoree Dr. Carlos A. Lopez, Director of Internal Medicine Specialists-Rancho Mirage. The elegant black-tie dinner will be held at the Westin Mission Hills Resort in Rancho Mirage and will begin at 6:00 pm with cocktails. At 7:00 pm, a dinner with "South American" cuisine and fashion show by "Nancy Whitlock Productions" will take place at 7:00 pm, to be followed with "The Girls from Ipanema" Brazilian show.

Approximately 350 local doctors and community leaders are expected to attend to recognize Dr. Carlos A. Lopez for his altruistic work in Latacunga, Cotopaxi, Ecuador South America where he traveled with IMA. Dr. Lopez performed free surgical procedures, consulted with area doctors and reviewed their case files. It was through such sacrifice of time and talent that many thousands of Ecuadorians in that region have had their lives forever changed.

The IMA wishes to publicly acknowledge our doctor's for their service. Dr. Carlos A. Lopez is a true example of altruism and affection from our community.

IMA has conducted annual medical missions to South America since 2000. Each year a team of over forty has been recruited from the medical community including, physicians, dentists, nurses, pharmacists, optometrists, interpreters, technicians and assistants with altruistic spirits that donate their time, energy and expertise to help people with medical and dental problems.

Coordinated by Rancho Mirage resident and founder of IMA, Ines Allen- these teams perform surgeries, consultations and Doctor's conferences during their missions.

The International Medical Alliance was formed to provide for the continuation, improvement and expansion of medical services to the impoverished in the countries it travels for medical aid. IMA is a local, non- profit charity, which relies heavily on fundraising support as part of IMA's drive to raise funds for supplies and equipment which supports each mission.

In Ecuador, when the poorest of its population is met with the need of medical help, they find that the public hospital's ability to help them is well below the benchmark of healthcare standards held in the United States. However, this quality of health care can be augmented through the opportunity that IMA offers during its missions.

The purpose of the IMA is to guarantee that IMA remains freely available to the public and that the public has access to medical help and materials that furthers their care at no charge.
