Today students got the chance to shadow Technical Assistants to Primary Care (ATAP). These are health workers that travel from door to door to ensure that all citizens are receiving the care they need. ATAPs Fabian Rodriguez and Javier Mojica point out a pair of nesting scarlet macaw’s! What a treat to see these rare birds!
ATAP worker Fabian explains how he collects patient information in the medical record before we go make a home visit. He spends a greats deal of time educating patients.HPA student Serena Carlson asks Fabian how diabetic patients are managed.
We woke up to monkeys on this morning!
