Over 350 patients seen by Gift of Health team in Guatemala

This week, a student health mission is serving patients in Guatemala. Led by the Humanity First Student Organizations of Temple University and the University of Toledo College of Medicine, the team has partnered with HF Guatemala and local healthcare professionals.

After a day spent in orientation, training, and a tour of HF Healthcare Services Nasir Hospital, the team was ready for patient care. On the first day of clinic in Tecpán a total of 354 patients received screenings and care by the local physicians and student assistants, including 116 children.

Checking vitals helped patients understand their health baselines. This is particularly important for patients monitoring their blood sugar to control diabetes, a growing concern in Guatemala. Patients received medications at the in-camp pharmacy, and a local dentist led check ups and teeth extraction. In parallel, students swabbed children with fluoride for longer term protection of their oral health. Students helped the doctors to check and record patients’ vitals and medical records including their diagnosis and treatment plan. 

The clinic day both began and ended with a ceremony to welcome and thank the team. The local organizers gave out certificates to each student and doctor that served in the clinic.

Almost 4 dozen people pose in a group photo. Some are wearing casual clothing typical of the united states and some of the women are wearing plaid printed skirts seen in Guatemala.
