President of the Board for Tepehua
The H.O.W. AC. (Health Outreach for Women,) said good-bye to one of its founding members, Sylvia Flores. Having ridden with the Maternal Health Mobile Unit visiting women in rural areas since H.O.W’s inception, Sylvia will return to her own CEDEJO clinic and pursue her work in sex education for the young. The Mobile unit will continue with its President Jose Antonio Jimenez Aguilar, Registered Nurses Marta Olga Lara Aguilar, and Susana Ramos Lopez.
The Tepehua Maternal Health Program and H.O.W plan to join forces so that they will be able to take more services to the villages. The Tepehua Medical Mobile Unit will follow on the heels of the Maternal Health Mobile Unit, and our Doctor Carlos and nurse will give medical help and education on sexually transmitted diseases including HIV.
For the patient whose health will be served better by going to the Tepehua Clinic, the Tepehua Unit will take them to Tepehua Community Clinic for treatment.
Overall Health services for the Lakeside barrios has escalated as the number of private organizations providing service has expanded. All of them willing to work together for the good of the whole. This includes veterinarian services.
There is a special place somewhere for those who help the helpless, you will know it when you get there.
