Today, we completed our work in Paraiso. We did not have any other doctors today, so the team spent the morning providing housecalls to chronically ill residents in the community who are not able to get to the school clinic and then in the afternoon moved the medications to the Fudacion Sol Naciente health center. We start there tomorrow morning at 8 am.

To date, we have provided care to more than 400 patients in Paraiso. This will be the first time working in this new site, and we are not sure what to expect. Hopefully, though, this might provide another way to work with an underserved community in Santo Domingo.
