Medical Spanish: Lost in Translation by Gabriela Funez-dePagnier Jan 19

It felt great to collectively accomplish a week of setting up five pop-up clinics in rural communities around Xela, and providing free medical care and prescriptions to approximately 400 patients. This experience would not have come to fruition without Timmy Global Health’s partnership with Pop Wuj. The staff members at Pop Wuj, who assist in all medical brigades year-round, foster an ongoing relationship with the communities through having continuous conversations and building trust to provide tailored medical care for the patients.

I remember my middle school science teacher telling me, “Put good in, get good out!” as she reminded my class to eat breakfast and snack throughout the day if we needed to.

by tuftsigl

Hi everyone! At the end of our second full day in Kathmandu, we’re sitting on a romantically lit roof-top garden, trying to remember all that’s happened in the past two days. So far, it’s been exciting/tiring/eventful/overwhelming and especially eye-opening. We are exhausted, but we are enjoying it.
