Dr. Robert Potter has completed his 13th successful Honduras Hope Mission. One of the founders of Genesis Medical Associates, Inc. the largest still independent primary care physicians group serving the Greater North Hills, he was joined by wife Cindy, a pediatric physical therapist, fellow Genesis physician Dr. Dan Grob, Dr. Grob’s daughter Paige and 20 other volunteers in their February visit.
Sponsored through the auspices of several churches in the North Hills, they annually visit the people of La Villa de San Francisco.
“All of our participants pay all of their expenses including air fare, room and board,” said Dr. Potter. “Any donation to our 501c3 goes directly to the care of needy Hondurans.”
“It’s a rural, agricultural village with few paved roads, little electricity and limited access to water,” added Dr. Potter, the lead physician on the medical team. “We stay a week and each volunteer carries 100 pounds of supplies for villagers. We provide over-the-counter medicines, clothing, canes, baby clothes, antifungal creams, steroid shots, prescriptions for diabetes and high blood pressure medication and water filters.”
