We have had a very busy few weeks in Guatemala!
Thanks to several surgery NGOs, we were able to arrange 7 surgeries for patients on our (very long) surgery waitlist, include a cleft palate repair and several other important surgeries. Thanks to the San Lucas Mission and the Shalom Foundation for helping with this!
This week we visited several of our nutrition programs, where we had the expert assistance of some of our most experienced pediatricians, Drs. Jane Striegel and Tyrone Melvin, both of the Carle Physician Group.
We also taught neonatal resuscitation techniques to midwives in Tecpán and Comalapa, saw numerous diabetics and other patients with chronic health complaints in multiple sites, and hosted a visit from the ABC 20/20 crew for a story on malnutrition in Guatemala!
