Clinic Blog: 2012 Mexico 2 Clinic Blog
August 27, 2012
We have arrived in Mexico! Sunday was our travel day and spent time getting to know others on the team. Today (Monday) was an orientation day. Our leadership team kicked things off with a choreographed “dance”. It gave everyone a good laugh! In the morning we had a time of introduction. There were some members of the clinic that spoke no English so others translated for them. The leaders emphasized to us all that quality; not quantity should be the focus of the clinic. We are only planning on seeing 6,000 to 8,000 for this clinic.
Then, we headed over to the clinic sight. It’s just a short walk across the street from the hotel. However, we had to be careful because pedestrians don’t have the right of way here. It will be a nice each day to have the clinic so close by.
Once we arrived at the site, we were greeted by our local volunteers/translators. We were broken into groups of 5 and got an overview of the clinic flow. In the afternoon we had a deeper dive and some hands on training into all aspects of the clinic.
The site is all set up and the team is all oriented and ready for the clinic to start tomorrow.
