Our ISL medical, dental, public health, nursing, and veterinary volunteers arrive in Managua for orientation and seminars in tropical medicine, taking vital signs, pharmacology, house clinic-community triage, clinic organization, and medical Spanish.  We also present volunteers with a short overview of the history and socioeconomics of Nicaragua.
