Making A Difference

Today was a busy day as we helped out at the elementary school in the morning and visited the UGA extension for lunch. In the afternoon, we listened to each other give presentations on the health of migrant farmworkers.

At night camp, we returned to a camp from the first week. Last week, this camp had many workers with chemical burns on their feet. It was great to see one of our previous patients return and show us how his treatment was working. The medication and education from our team made a huge difference and he was much better. It was great to see firsthand how our care is improving the health of the farmworkers.
