This September we are celebrating our first year anniversary of the opening of our clinic facility. We actually spent a full year before the opening doing the necessary background work. This meant putting a plan together after doing our own assessment of the local health needs, negotiating with the government-run health system, and getting the necessary licenses and certifications to open a health facility.
But getting the doors open and patients into care has been a special moment for us. We have scheduled a lunch for the staff and volunteers in San Juan.
