Double Clinics Continue in the High Season

Pop Wuj Spanish School always sees high enrollment during the "gringo summer," aka June and July.  Once again the Medical Spanish Program has been at capacity and with this we have been able to run double clinics.  Double clinics allow us to serve more patients in Xela and in the rural communities where we offer mobile clinic.

Wednesday, July 23rd was no exception.  Pop Wuj staff, volunteers, and Medical Spanish students worked in Xela at the Pop Wuj Clinic and in Llanos del Pinal with a mobile clinic.  In Llanos we saw 22 patients from the community, including some Pop Wuj Scholarship Program participants and Family Support Center staff and participants.

Joanna, a Pop Wuj Medical Spanish student, triaged the patients, including Dinora,
a Pop Wuj Scholarship Program student.

Dr. Sammy, a Pop Wuj doctor, and Cali, a Medical Spanish Program student examine Don Marcelino, a Llanos community member and the father of several of the children who attend the Family Support Center.

Reviewing the pharmacy orders and filling prescriptions.

More pharmacy fun

We will return to Llanos del Pinal for another mobile clinic when the next Timmy Global Health brigade arrives in mid-August.  ¡Gracias a todos por su trabajo en los proyectos!
