    U.S. Navy Doctors Bring Medical Care to Amazon

    171127-N-QM691-469 AMAZON RIVER, Brazil (Nov. 27, 2017) Commander Carlos Marco, Manaus Naval Polyclinic Director, comforts a 14-year-old indigenous boy aboard NAsH Soares de Meirelles on the Amazon River in Brazil, November 27. Lt. Cmdr. Thomas Barlow, a U.S. Navy doctor, and 1st Lt. Priscila Tomy Ribeiro, a Brazilian medical officer, clean the gunshot wound in the boy’s hand. After the injury, the boy’s family had hailed NAsH Soares de Meirelles, which was passing along the river, and had used a small boat to bring him to the ship. Barlow is a member of a team of five U.S. Navy doctors who are engaging in a month-long humanitarian mission up the Amazon River. The team is working with the Brazilian Navy to deliver healthcare to some of the most isolated people in the world.
