Serving the young and the old

The beautiful thing about our permanent clinic is we are able to see people from the beginning of life until the end.  This sweet little baby who came to our clinic today we saw when the mom was pregnant with him.  Well child check-ups are a very uncommon occurance here as it is expensive and an all-day adventure to take the bus into town and wait all day to maybe be seen.  Here for a nominal fee they can have a pediatric physician assess, evaluate and ensure that their baby is healthy and growing well. We keep a growth chart on all patients, and give vitamins to eveyone.  This way we are truly able to monitor the progress of babies, and everyone in the community.

On another note, Abigail Clow is back from furlough with her family, and is excited to be back to "work" in the clinic.
