Medical Kit and Bags Ready to Go

Dr Francisco Rico will be helping Laura carry all the supplies to Ixtlahuacan del Rio.  Since one van is not large enough for everything, Laura’s taxi drive friend, Juan Fonseca will be accompanying her in another van.  Juan has been volunteering for Tia for two years, helping Laura gather supplies and he is excited to see a graduation ceremony.

They will meet the amazing members of UAG‘s Programa de Medicina en la Comunidad (PMC) Brigade of 40 professors, doctors and students.  These committed brigade members provide the education for the Promotoras, free health care for the community members, and educational classes for the schools and resident.

Check back later for pictures of the graduation ceremony!
