On Mission With Harding University

Our week has been shared with a great team from the Harding Univeristy PA school, Pharmacy School and some pre-med students. They jumped right in from the start as we tackled our well-child check-ups for the ABC kiddos. We were also pretty ambitious this year and tried spreading out the team over several more communities, and for the most part it worked great! We covered 14 different clinics in 4 days! The students have been doing vital signs, nutrition assessment, physical exams and basic labs and pharmacy. They also took on the very important task of one-on-one hand washing and teeth brushing demonstrations with their patients. We had some very long days, but thanks to this team and their supervising providers, Gary Hill, P.A., Eric Dahl, M.D. and Dannie Middleton, M.D., we covered 8 of our 11 ABC communities and more than 250 kids! Great job! In addition to working with our wonderful staff and visiting team, we were joined by Dra. Josefina Lux, donating her time as well this week. She is a blessing to this ministry still and loved by her patients.
