It was an honor and pleasure to spend February in the clinics and communities of Suchitoto and La Mora. From making traditional salvadoran food with my host family, to exploring the beautiful streets of Suchitoto, to touring sites of the civil war with survivors. I have learned so much about the rich, vibrant culture here as well as the violent conflict and the role of my country. I can’t thank enough my host family and other community members for their time, space, and openness with their stories. I’ll never forget my experience here, and I hope to be more compassionate informed citizen and doctor because of it.
