FHC/CHIPA Medical Brigade

In September five healthcare providers with five helpers, a local pharmacist, and two interpreters saw 926 patients in 4 1/2 days of medical brigades in four mountain villages of Honduras, plus the Santa Rosa de Lima Clinic at Nuevo Paraíso. They distributed more than $8,000 in medications, reading glasses, vitamins, ibuprofen and acetaminophen, and parasite medications. Dr. John Stevens and Dr. Jeffrey Bodle educated clinic physicians on asthma and neurological disorders and Dr. Stevens met with four pediatric pulmonologists to establish the first Cystic Fibrosis Clinic in Honduras!
