BENEFITING: Clinica Verde
EVENT DATE: Oct 25, 2014
Hola! I'm the Treasurer and a current Board member of Clinica Verde, a new model of care for families in need. I'm running a half marathon to raise money and help others get on the path to a healthy and happy lifestyle.
Clinica Verde is an outpatient community clinic – a global prototype of a sustainably designed health clinic in Nicaragua. We take a preventive approach to the wellbeing of our cherished patients, providing not just clinical care, but nutrition and health education in an environment designed to support and improve health outcomes. Clinica Verde is not just a clinic – it’s a center of community health that celebrates the dignity of all who enter our doors. A place where people want to go.
We are guided by the belief that everything we do and produce as a response to poverty and human suffering should acknowledge the value and potential of each life while demonstrating respect for the shared resources of our world.
