U.S., Peru military medics, NGOs treat patients during New Horizons Peru

SAN CLEMENTE, Peru—Maj. Rene Saenz examines the teeth of a Peruvian boy while explaining his observations to the boy’s mother June 21. The medical care is being given as part of New Horizons, a U.S. Southern Command-sponsored humanitarian assistance and training exercise that takes place annually in Latin American and Caribbean countries. New Horizons Peru affords Air Force medical personnel the opportunity to hone their skills and train alongside their Peruvian military counterparts. As part of New Horizons Peru, U.S. and Peruvian medics are planning to provide free medical care to about 30,000 Peruvians in communities in need. Saenz is a dentist deployed from 12th Air Force (Air Forces Southern), Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz. (U.S. Air Force photo by Capt. Candace N. Park/released)
