UCSD Flying Samaritans Clinic Presentation
Transcript of UCSD Flying Samaritans Clinic Presentation
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
Restorative Procedures: composite, fugIX, temporary fillings
