Our Brigade’s Mobile Lab Saves Lives


We couldn’t be prouder of our brigade from Universidad del Valle de Mexico‘s Zapopan Campus.  They brought along a mobile lab and chemists on our last project.  For the first time, our villagers got free testing services, processed on the spot and analyzed so results could be shared quickly.  One man’s life was saved from kidney failure!  He was immediately rushed to a hospital.  Bravo UVM!  One of many reasons we LOVE our medical school partner.  They not only supply us with doctors, but nurses, nutritionists, psychologists and now chemists too.
