Rural Health Start

We started our first rural health session this weekend. We had a decent turnout - 8 women. The hope was to start at 3:00, but it turned out to be closer to Peruvian time, 4:30pm. The topic was respiratory infections, a hot topic now a days that the weather has cooled down quite a bit at night and all the kiddos are coming down with these dangerous coughs and colds. I was very impressed with our nurse, Yardeni, who was very patience and composed during the whole session, despite the late start and different levels of interest among the women. We set up a 2 month trial period to test our rural health education sessions - so will still have two more months to go to see if we can rally more women and interest and education.
