We started the day meeting and collaborating with our UPOLI students, as well as a videographer from the university. We then headed to the barrio to spend the morning with our families.

We rose earlier than usual this morning as we headed to CAESC, the small clinic owned and operated by UPOLI. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by the UPOLI staff, students, and some of the women from the barrios we have been serving. Every Tuesday, the women of the barrio have been able to obtain pap smears from the clinic workers here.

We started another beautiful morning with breakfast at our hotel and then departed once again for UPOLI to meet with our students and their instructor Georgina. Today was the first time we presented one of our health education posters to some of the women of the barrio that we have been serving.

We visited our families and used our personalized health assessment questions to gather as much information as possible. We took blood pressures, pulses and listened to their heart and lung sounds. The information gathered assisted us in developing our presentation topics that we would give to the members of the community next week.

Today, we met the local families who we will be completing health assessments on. We formed four groups of two and were paired with one UPOLI student. Esther, Eliette, Conys, and Joseling are all second-year nursing students. They help facilitate communication between us and our families. The four families we are working with are very diverse and present with different health challenges.
