We work hard, and we play hard!

We shut down clinic a bit earlier than normal so that we could go to a thank you dinner provided by Acidico, the organization in Guatemala that helps us plan and execute this medical mission trip. The first order of business was a soccer game - Team USA against Team Guatemala. Final score was 3-0, with the Guatemalans taking the gold medal.

Our hosts provided a wonderful meal, and gave us heart-warming thanks and recognition for our work here. Every student got a beautiful woven hair band or pen and coin purse, and the faculty got a shirt, jacket, or bag. The meals and gifts are wonderful, but pale in comparison to the tear-filled thank yous from our patients for the difference we are able to make in their lives.
