Last Thursday the Timmy Global Health Brigade held their most ambitious mobile clinic. We traveled 45 minutes to Buena Vista, a Mam community with a large health center that we were able to take over for the day.

At each clinic, a volunteer from the vitals station adds each patient's name and registration number to a list on the wall so that when doctors are ready, they can simply check the list and call the next name. (Photo by Elizabeth Barnes)
