Tomorrow (February 23rd), Tia will be conducting our 3 month follow-up study of the villages near El Salvador, Jalisco, which is in the Tequila municipality. We will be surveying both the promotoras (Community Health Workers) and the residents of the area to determine what is needed, what we can do better, and in what areas we have been successful. These studies are particularly useful for us, so that we can constantly improve our model.
Next week, the PMC brigade of medical students and professors from Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara will train our next group of Promotoras near Teocuitatlan de Corona, Jalisco. We are expecting to train and supply 22 promotoras for this area, but as a rule, we always have more volunteers than are needed for the population size. We welcome anyone who wishes to receive health education!
The day after our Teocuitatlan graduation on Friday, Tia will be heading to Sayula, Jalisco to do our follow-up study there. Please check back frequently; there will be updates and new pictures added here almost daily.
