IQ Interquirofanos, aware of the significant commitment it has to society and those who are the country’s future, managed the start of a Social Responsibility program by conducting a surgical day for children from low socioeconomic levels that required surgical intervention. I volunteered in the presurgical evaluation, surgery and follow-up in 2012 and 2013. The aim was to return the smile and improve the quality of life of the children of the department of Antioquia through surgical sessions.
