EVENT DATE: Jul 25, 2011
Plans are underway to run a one week health fair July 25-30, 2011 . The Health Mission is aimed at providing care and medical screening for: hypertension, diabetes, sexually transmitted diseases, pregnancy testing, and dental services. The team of health professionals who currently practice in the USA includes medical doctors, dentists, registered nurses and dental hygienists will work in collaboration with the medical professionals in Jamaica. The Jamaican Ministry of Health has granted permission for the use of the clinic in Granville, St. James. We expect to serve a minimum of 1,400 patients within five days and would like you to help by contributing funds to provide the much needed healthcare to this underserved population.
On March 20th I will be running the LA Marathon in an effort to raise funds towards the purchase of medication and supplies and have set a personal goal to raise $5,000.00. With your help I know I can reach my goal and help the medical team provide the transforming and life-saving care that is needed by this population.
Let us all work together to make the world a better place for the entire human race! Your generous support will be greatly appreciated.
