Millennium Fellowship Project: Jóvenes Altruistas Pensando en México
bring multidisciplinary care to communities with difficult access to health services. We do multidisciplinary brigades were we bring students and professionals in medicine, phsycology, dentistry, nutrition, education and legal attention, covering the aspects of prevention, diagnosis and treatment. We measured our work with statistics based on how many patients we consulted, their risk factors and cronic-denenerative diseases, treatments and prescriptions given and a satisfaction survey we applied to the others participants. All this help us improve and prepare better for the next brigades because we get to know more our audience target and their need so we try to get all the materials and medicines to cover this especific needs and improve our logistics.
