Control Médico at the Family Support Centre

On Tuesday April 1st, The Family Support Centre received the services of a visiting Timmy Global Health group, including doctors and medical students in training.  They weighed and measured the heights of each child at the Centre and then performed a check up on each of them as well.  Whilst the children were eating lunch, Timmy gave an informative talk about the importance of cleaning teeth and engaged the children with questions and examples of experiments performed with different products and their effects on teeth.

The Timmy group interacted with the younger children in the morning and gave them some worksheets to colour in

Jessica, Samuel (who isn't enrolled at the Centre but came along for a consult), Amy, and Ingrid all colouring in Elmo worksheets that Timmy brought along

It was a long but very important and beneficial day for all!
