International clinic week.By 2012 it is our goal to provide a 1-2 weeks of medical care to poor villages in El Salvador & neighboring countries. Working with local government agencies, CEA will sponsor International Clinic Week, providing the vehicle for doctors, nurses, students and volunteers to get involve in a 1-2 week clinic to some of the poorest areas in El Salvador and neighboring countries. Understanding this is not a permanent solution to lack of health care in many countries, it is our goal to educate the public and patients of the need for this type or activates world wide.
Our Current projects:
* Free Pediatrics Clinic (FPC), Phoenix Arizona, US – Ongoing 2008
* Health Children Education: Online & During Quarterly Pediatrics Clinic – Ongoing 2008
Free Pediatrics Clinic (FPC), Phoenix Arizona, US – Ongoing 2008With the help of Emilia’s mentor, Dr. Matilda Garcia, CEA hosts a quarterly free Pediatrics Clinic for underserved families in the city of Mesa, Arizona. The goal of the clinics is to provide preventive medicine to individuals that have no access to health care. The majority of patients are low income Latino families that either for fear of social status do not attend care provided by the state or do not have the capability of visiting a doctor.
Health Children Education: Online & During Quarterly Pediatrics Clinic – Ongoing 2008Educating parents about their children health is an important factor in their children’s future. Latinos children are among the highest in obesity disorder in the United States. Simple healthy eating education can have tremendous impact in their lives. By providing educational brochures, and talking, teaching the parents about the importance of healthy eating during the FPC, we hope that we can have positive influence on the child’s long term health.
