PMC Assists Grateful Residents


Here, Doctora Hayme (sitting in the blue vest) consults with a patient in Citala, Jalisco. A brigade of 25 medicos from the Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara’s (UAG), Community Medicine Program (PMC) provided direct patient care, trained Tia’s Promotoras (Community Health Workers), and conducted a baseline data study of the area.

This is the second time Dra. Hayme has joined a Tia brigade. She also accompanied us to the villages near Ojuelos, Jalisco and enjoyed the experience so much, that she signed up for the Teocuitatlan brigade. Thank you Dra. Hayme!


Wednesday evening, residents of Citala (in the municipality of Teocuitatlan) threw a party for the brigade, working most of the day to cook the posole, cut the vegetables and make the tortillas for the fiesta. Above, you can see Dr. Rico (left) and Dr. Juan Pablo (middle at the head of the table) enjoying the meal with members of the brigade.
