Dr. J. Mark Engel Visits the Dominican Republic

After an absence of more than 4 years, Dr. J. Mark Engel, MD, led a team of 30 volunteers to the Hospital Centro Medico Romana in the Dominican Republic last October with the organization Healing the Children NJ. The team performed dozens of corrective surgeries on children born with congenital eye conditions. 

Dr. Engel has led or participated in over 30 trips to countries in South and Latin America, including Peru, Ecuador, Honduras, and Bolivia. On many of the trips his wife, Isabel Kentengian, a Spanish professor, served as an administrator.
