Practicing on Oranges

Practice on Oranges

Bertha Alicia Lopez, the President of DIF (Family & Social Services) in Tuxcueca is practicing injections on an orange before attempting it on a live person.  An orange is much less intimidating for a first stab.  She and her classmates passed this exercise on their exams with flying colors.  Tia’s next stop will be in La Manzanilla de La Paz in September.  We hope to stop by and say hello to our Promotores and friends in Tizapan El Alto and Tuxcueca while we are in the area.

Practicando en naranjas

Bertha Alicia Lopez, presidenta del DIF (Desarrollo Integral de la Familia: servicios sociales) en Tuxcuceca está practicando inyecciones en una naranja antes de intentarlo en una persona. Una naranja es mucho menos intimidante para un primer pinchazo. Ella y sus compañeros pasaron este ejercicio en sus exámenes de manera sobresaliente. La próxima parada de Tía será en Manzanilla de la Paz en septiembre. Esperamos hacer una escala para saludar a nuestros promotores en Tizapán el Alto y Tuxcueca mientras visitamos la zona.
