Flying Drs of America

In 2016 Dr. Jenicke joined the Flying Doctors of America on their medical mission trip to Guatemala.  The Flying Doctors of America (FDoA) has made it its mission to provide medical and dental assistance to as many of the poor and needy as they are able to reach. 
Their motto is to “Fly wherever there is a need!”
   Dr. Jenicke had an amazing time as part of the medical team that brought medical/dental care to Petén near the famed Mayan ruins of Yaxha.  Guatemala is the largest and most populous of the Central American countries and one of the poorest.  The CIA World Fact Book considers 56.2% of the population of Guatemala to be living in abject poverty (half of these earn less than $2 a day).  The team, which consisted of several medical doctors, nurses, dentists and oral surgeons, provided free treatment in one of the most impoverished areas of Guatemala.
