A case of dental tourism (happy customer's story)

HealthcareI am a SW florida resident with aspirations of moving to Panama. I also had a very bad problem with my 60 year old teeth -- both esthetically [they looked horrible] and functionally. These problems most likely resulted from a severe case of dental phobia which resulted in a 12 year absence from dental offices.

From Pine to Panama: Woman enters Peace Corps

HealthcareHeather Ballance doesn't consider herself to be the adventurous type. Yet she left her Pine home Monday to spend two years doing what she can't quite explain in a village she cannot name under conditions she can only imagine. Ballance, who has spent most of her 23 years in the suburbs, has joined the Peace Corps. After a two-week orientation in Washington, D.C., she will head to Panama, where she will volunteer as an environmental health extensionist.

Health care workers head to Panama

HealthcareGrowing up in London, Zee Lewis enjoyed many advantages, some owing to the fact her father worked as a surgeon. But given his profession, the young girl also saw her share of people coping with illness. "We had a great life, but he showed us the other side of life, of pain and suffering," she said. "That spurred me to think I want to make a difference ... that’s my desire."

HealthcareHealth insurance is a must. Fortunately, in Panama, the Hospital Santa Fe Health Plans are available for a very modest price. There is even a plan for people over 60, 70 and 80 years of age. The plan has a network of over 100 doctors, including all medical specialties, and many of these speak English fluently. The different plans cover outpatient and hospital care, ambulance, and emergency room care. Pharmaceuticals are available for a 17% discount for the older folks.
