My Medical Mission
From Vicki Werkman
I am excited to share with you that I will be going on a medical mission with Medical Ministry International Canada (MMI) to Nagua, Dominican Republic from January 7 – 13, 2017.
My role will be geared to my previous experience in dental assisting, dental surgical assisting, and my current experience working in Rick’s podiatric office, providing basic footcare and diabetic footcare education.
Each day our team will set up a mobile clinic and travel to basic facilities such as schools and local health centers. We anticipate seeing hundreds of patients during the week. Our surgery team will work at the local hospital in partnership with the community health organization. Local residents will also be receiving some health education/instruction.
The cost for this years’ mission trip is $2635.00. I hope to fundraise at least half of the cost, and pay the balance myself. If you would consider sponsoring me, donations can be made at Medical Ministry International Canada. Scroll down and click on “donate now” and “support a participant”. In the comment box, be sure to include my name, Vicki Werkman, and Nagua, Dominican Republic. Any amount over $10 is eligible for a tax receipt. Thank you.
P.S. to my medical/dental friends: We will also be collecting medical and dental supplies to bring down with us. If you have any items you would like to donate, please email or call me (905.845.4817) and I will arrange pick up.
