Medical Teams International’s Virtual Education Event: Guatemala – Fighting Malnutrition in Our Changing World

February 16 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Featuring Dr. Walter Lopez, a veteran employee of Medical Teams, in conversation with Providence Health’s Brittn Grey and RN Amie Bockstahler, the event will focus on why malnutrition is prevalent in this population, and how a changing world impacts health crises like malnutrition.

Medical Teams began work in Guatemala in 2008. From 2014-2017, in partnership with Providence, Medical Teams implemented the Chicamán Maternal and Child Health Program in 16 rural villages. Since October 2018, thanks to the committed, continued support of Providence and its skilled volunteers, the program has transitioned into 12 new communities in Chicamán. The second stage of this integrated health and nutrition program also provides capacity-building support to 220 Ministry of Health care providers in four health districts.
