Today we visited the villages of Las Canas and Astillero, and treated over 250 patients. Besides seeing a multitude of patients with Dengue and Chikungunya (which continue to plague the area), we treated patients for both acute and chronic illnesses. As part of our women's health initiative, we performed PAP smears and breast exams. Because Ascariasis and other parasitic infections are so prevalent in the country, we provided deworming medications to children and adults. Two of our emergency physicians traveled to the Roberto Clemente Clinic to give CPR and first aid courses to local ambulance drivers. Although we only served these two communities today, villagers travelled from all over the coastline in search of medical care. In fact, our last patient of the day was a nine-year-old boy who rode on horseback with his mother for over an hour to reach our clinic! Looking forward to tomorrow's clinic.
