What happens if I get sick or hurt?

All facilitators have current first aid and CPR certifications, and can treat basic medical situations on-site.  Sustainable Summer has clearly defined “standing orders” in the event of a medical emergency. All participants are automatically enrolled in an InternationalSOS plan, which includes 24/7 phone access to travel medicine professionals for consultation and emergency assistance. In the immediate areas we will be visiting, medical clinics are available for a broad range of health issues, but participants with more serious needs will be transported to the nearest major medical facility that adheres to similar standards and practices as medical facilities in the United States.
