UMass Nursing team arrives

This morning we said good-bye to Sue, Holly, Karin, and Angie who spent a great week with us working hard.

Soon after they left, the UMass Dartmouth team arrived. This team consists of 7 nurses, 1 doctor, and 11 nursing students. We took a walk around the neighborhood to see the PID houses in Blanchard, then unpacked and inventoried all the medical supplies that they brought down. After dinner, I led the introductory meeting and Mary the medical orientation. The team all went to bed early after a long day of travel. We are all looking forward to a great week, providing medical care to so many people both at our PID clinic and out at many mobile sites. The students are eager to get started in a week full of new experiences and lots of learning.

  2. The Saunders Family sends our best wishes for a very productive week!
