UMass Dartmouth/Atlanta team's amazingly productive week

Its hard to believe that the UMass Dartmouth/Atlanta team has already gone. They had a very, very active week, seeing a total of 103 sponsorship children for our Well Child check-ups, several staff trainings, 2 mobile clinics to the "dump" community of Mohlea, and of course a ton of patient consultations. With two American pediatricians here, Dr. Paul was even able to take a few vacation days during the week.

Here are some pictures from the very productive week:

Team members brought jump ropes for the neighborhood kids to enjoy.

The UMass Darthmouth nursing students brought 3 large posters (in Creole of course) for the PID staff to use when working with PID patients. The posters give info on breastfeeding and sexual health.
