Our Largest Graduating Class Ever!

IMG_20180807_123717_527

On July 27th, 84 people from Zapotitlan de Vadillo graduated from Tia’s Promotores course making it the largest graduating class in our history!  We were quite spoiled and treated as honored guests in this gorgeous municipality.  Tia is now serving 198,000 people through our 676 Promotores.

Above, you can see VEA (Volunteer Expedition Adventurer) Linda teach our class how to set up an I.V. with the help of her daughter Berkley (background) and Dr. Cuauhtemoc (far right).  Linda is a nurse and clinician in California and Berkley is studying nursing.  It was great hands on experience for both of them who performed triage for around 300 patients while we traveled from town to town.

If you are interested in a VEA experience, contact Nate Harris at 602-601-6056 or tionate@cox.net .  We have another trip being organized for November.
