NEW YORK CITY: International Medical Alliance (IMA), a non-profit group based in Rancho Mirage, Calif., is seeking two registered dental assistants for an upcoming medical mission. IMA has already assembled a team of more than 60 doctors, nurses, dentists and support personnel who have agreed to volunteer their time and talents on a 10-day medical mission to Esteli, Nicaragua, Aug. 4 to 14.

“We have a very diverse group of volunteers joining us for our medical mission, including general, plastic and maxillofacial surgeons,” said Ines Allen, IMA’s founder and president. “However, we are still looking for two registered dental assistants to complete our team.”

In addition to volunteering their time and talents, the volunteers in IMA’s Nicaragua mission will be expected to pay for their own airfare. Room and board will be provided by the Nicaraguan government.

IMA is a non-profit organization that recruits doctors from every medical discipline to volunteer their time and talents to make a positive difference in the lives of children and adults with limited economic means, both in the United States and overseas.

More information about IMA’s efforts is available from Ines Allen at (760) 485-8963 or at
