North Texas PAMS Chapter

Home Page

Welcome to the North Texas Chapter of PAMS (Peruvian American Medical Society). We are currently a handful of Peruvian physicians who have created this chapter to reach physicians and other professionals interested in improving medical care for the indigent in Peru. We are developing many new projects and hope to grow our chapter in the near future.

The North Texas Chapter of PAMS, Division of Peruvian American Medical Society Endownment Fund (PAMS EF)is a 501 (c)(3) non profit organization (EIN-38-2824781).

This Chapter was created to reach out to physicians and other professionals from North Texas interested in humanitarian activities in Peru. Since 2007, volunteers from North Texas have been involved in the care of over 2,500 patients and performed approximately 480 surgical procedures in poor areas of the country such as Ayacucho, Huancavelica, and Yantaló. Our volunteers have helped many patients, mainly children and young adults, undergo life changing and complicated reconstructive surgical procedures. In addition, we have supported orphanages in Ayacucho and Huancavelica. A bicycle donation program for children started in 2013 with the donation of bicycles to orphan children in Huancavelica. The program has continued with a donation of 300 bicycles to school children in Huancavelica, Yantaló, and El Pedregal, Simbal.

In 2018, members of the North Texas Division of PAMS EF will return on a Medical Mission to El Pedregal, Simbal, La Libertad, Perú, to provide free care in Family Medicine, Pediatrics and Dentistry. We will provide education for nurses and other health care providers. We will also continue our bicycle donation program to schoolchildren.
