Kate Visits Peten February 2018

Week of February 25. Kate is off to Peten where she’ll be making progress on building the new Medical Training Center and Clinic in the coming week. Although there are no classes to teach, there is always much to be done. Hiring the contractor and preparing for ground breaking are just two items on the list. Thursday 2/22 Kate is packing for her trip. Every trip includes carrying supplies and equipment that are hard to get in Guatemala. This week we put out a call to friends and neighbors for spare blood pressure monitors and got several, plus a lot of very usable supplies for diabetics and other goodies. Grateful for people who stepped up on short notice. Sunday 2/25/18 On her first day

How we train rural farmers as health care providers

CHWs Advanced Training January 2018 January's advanced training course brought together Community Health Workers from 2002, 2005, 2010, and 2015. Like health care workers everywhere, CHWs never stop learning. Week-long advanced courses provide medical updates to every-day topics, such as diabetes, prenatal care, and the appropriate use of antibiotics, as well as in-depth coverage of complex topics, such as alcoholism and domestic violence. The volunteer CHWs show up in force to receive this training, attesting to their commitment and dedication to the health of their neighbors.
