WHAT WILL WE DO? WHAT ARE SOME OBJECTIVES?

Our primary activity will be providing medical services to the residents of rural underserved areas. We will work with them, experiencing daily life with them; hear their struggles, hopes, and dreams.  We will be providing medical consultations, providing medications, screening for diabetes and hypertension, on children we will apply fluoride treatments to their teeth, provide reading glasses as well as eye exams as needed for prescription lenses, and of course, providing health education and encouragement for those seeking our services.
