Editor's Comment: Thanks for writing this up. If you're doing something charitable to help the people of Panama please let me know. This article is a perfect example. The people who put this together here in Panama contacted me last week and wanted to know how they could get some publicity for their project. My answer is simple - since you guys are doing it, and you already know more about what's going on than I ever will, write it up yourself and send it in. The best way is to log on as a user on the www.panama-guide.com website and "contribute" the article for publication. Note: I publish these things for free for groups, organizations, charities, and non-profits just so long as no one is making any money. If you are doing "for profit" work then if you want to get on website then you can always advertise, so don't try to slip one by me "disguised" as charity. Anyway, this one is a couple of dentists and a doctor who are going to come down and do good things. They have to be sponsored by a local Panamanian recognized and established charity, as a requirement for doctors and dentists to work in Panama (even for free.) If you're doing something like this - send it to me twice - once (like now) before it happens, and then once again later after you're done, with photos, descriptions of how it went, what you did, etc. And above all, thank you for your efforts to make living in Panama better for everyone.
