Healing the Children New Jersey and Berkeley College Partner to Help Children in Ecuador

Healing the Children New Jersey and Berkeley College’s team of students, faculty, and alumna participated on a week-long medical mission at the Roberto Gilbert Children’s Hospital in Guayaquil, Ecuador. The team, which was led by Dr. Richard Schlussel, completed thirty-four complicated, urologic surgeries, a couple of which lasted more than nine hours. Other surgeons included: Dr. Steven Friedman, Dr. Ronnie Fine, and Dr. Jennifer Reifsnyder.

“It was an honor to participate on a medical mission and give back to those in need. Surgeons, anesthesiologists, pediatricians, nurses, surgical technologists, administrators, and students all focused on one goal – providing quality patient care,” said Joe Charleman, Chair, Surgical Technology and Surgical Processing Programs at Berkeley College and Co-Trip Administrator.
