Guangdong – Nov 2017
November 10 - November 17
The EMAS Guangdong Team was founded in 2002 and has rapidly expanded into a multi-national team with members from Canada, Hong Kong, Macau, Australia, mainland China and the US. The mission provides essential health care services for factory workers in Guangdong province In 2015 we visited some rural villages and a nursing home.
We will be returning in November 2017. We are in need of family physicians, pharmacists, a physiotherapist, optometrist and ministry and support workers.
In a typical year, the team conducts approximately 800 patient visits, 200 dental visits and performs hundreds of diagnostic ultrasounds. Psychiatric patients are also seen. In 2013, physiotherapists joined the team and began conducting appointments with many factory workers who suffer from musculoskeletal problems. Although the work schedule is often intense, team members enjoy warm fellowship with rural local churches.
