Win a Trip to Panama with Floating Doctors from Sermo

To celebrate the launch of iConsult 1.1, Sermo has partnered up with our Advisory Council partner, Dr. Ben LaBrot and Floating Doctors, to offer one of our doctors the trip of a lifetime:  joining our Floating Doctors on mission in Panama.  Watch the video below for more information about the promotion and what it’s like working with Floating Doctors, then get the specifics of the trip below.

It’s the ultimate work/play vacation – an 8 day, 7 night trip for two to Panama!  We’ve combined a posh vacation (5 star hotels, quiet sandy beaches, and exciting excursions) with a life-changing medical experience: volunteering with Floating Doctors.

Your Trip to Panama Includes…

  • Round-trip airfare for two to Panama City and the resort town of Bocas del Toro
  • 2 nights at one of Panama City’s finest hotels (eg. Trump Hotel or the Waldorf Astoria)
  • 5 nights at a beautiful Bed & Breakfast in Bocas del Toro
  • 2 days working with Floating Doctors in their clinic in Bocas del Toro, treating children and adults who have no other access to medical care
  • Per diem for meals, including a fabulous dinner at Trump Hotel’s Tejas Restaurant
  • A stipend for transportation while in Panama City
