Title: "Health Care Needs in Oaxaca's Remote Villages”
Learn about the health care needs of Oaxaca’s remote villages, which essentially have no or minimal access to medical, dental, or ophthalmological resources. Dr. Alberto Zamacona and colleagues, through their organization, Proyecto Compasión Oaxaca, visit some of these villages and provide free, medical, dental, and optometry services. While these services are faith based, the services are provided to all villagers with no strings-attached. Dr. Zamacona’s presentation will discuss the health cares needs of these remote villages and how his organization responds to those needs.
