WHO ARE WE?
We are a student-operated, non-profit organization providing free education and quality healthcare services to the low-income community of Ensenada, Mexico.
Transcdisciplinary Free Monthly Clinic

We serve children, the hardworking, and the elderly of the low-income suffering from
lack of access
to care due to social and economic inequalities.
EDUCATION

IS
PUBLIC HEALTH
Volunteers run a Diabetes Intervention project to teach patients how to monitor their blood glucose, modify their diets, and incorporate physical activity into their daily routines.
HAIRCUTS
We also have several vocational services provided by generous members of the Ensenada community. People volunteer their time and skills to provide patients with haircuts, nail services, and more while they await medical or dental services.
PHARMACY
Several charitable organizations in San Diego have donated medications to our clinics pharmacy, however many of our frequently used medications need to be purchased up front. The high cost of diabetes, blood pressure, and cholesterol medications puts strain on our limited funds
MEDICAL
Many of our patients suffer from ailments rooted in their socio-economic marginalization. We see many patients suffering from high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and chronic pain caused by poor diet and difficult working conditions.
DENTAL
After much preparation, our dental clinic has evolved to become a safety net in providing comprehensive care to patients who would otherwise not receive dental treatment.
