Clinic Report: February 24 @ Ensenada

Coordinator: Anjali Herekar

Patients seen: 28

The chilly morning of Saturday February 24th, we had our monthly clinic trip to serve the community of Chapultepec in Ensenada, Mexico. We had a total of 12 volunteers and 2 providers, 1 pharmacist, and 3 dentists also volunteer with us. We had a total of 3 cars that left the Stein parking lot at 6 am and 1 early car that left at 5:30 am to organize and set up the clinic before everyone arrived. We arrived at the clinic at around 8:30 am. With the 2 providers, we were able to see 28 patients in total before leaving at 1 pm. We also had a great Public Health presentation on Melanoma and Skin Protection, and our Public Health team passed out sunscreen for the patients. We had great success with our newly implemented Kid’s Corner, where children who are waiting to be seen can color with markers, crayons, etc. to pass the time. We all ate at the usual taco shop until 2 pm and the left for the border. At the border, the wait took about 1 hour, and we all arrived at campus around 6:15 pm.

Below are pictures of our patients that received glasses after attending our Optometry Clinic!

Women’s Clinic Donation Drive

We are planning our first women’s health clinic and will be holding a donation drive for feminine care products to donate to the patients. More specifically, we are asking for monetary donations in order to purchase pads and tampons. In exchange for a $6 donation, you will receive a clinic point.  The reason we are asking for a monetary donation is because there is so much variability in feminine care products that this is the most efficient way to standardize what we distribute to our patients.

If you would like to donate, please email the clinic coordinator account with your name and PID (as it appears on your CPM account) stating so. From there, a Clinic Coordinator will email you back confirming your desire to donate. After receiving confirmation, you may Venmo the FS account and the CC will give you your clinicpoints. If you would prefer a cash donation, please specify this in your email and we can coordinate a time to collect the donation.

Clinic Coordinator Email: ucsdflyingsams.cliniccoord@gmail.com

Please note that only 3 points total can be acquired through donations per person.

This is a great way to earn clinic points! We thank you in advance for your generosity!

Clinic Report: January 27 @ Ensenada

Patients seen: 22

The morning of Saturday January 27th, we had our monthly clinic trip to serve the community of Chapultepec in Ensenada, Mexico. We had a total of 18 volunteers and had 3 providers, 2 pharmacists, and 2 dentists also volunteer with us. We had a total of 3 cars that left the Stein parking lot at 6:30 am and 2 early cars that left at 6:00 to organize and set up the clinic before everyone arrived. The later cars arrived at the clinic at around 9:30. With the 3 providers, we were able to see 22 patients in total before leaving at 1:30. We all ate at the usual taco shop until 3:00 and the left for the border, except for Car 3, which left earlier and separately to drop off expired medicine in Rosarito.. The caravan split apart 30 minutes before the border, so all cars arrived at the border at different times. At the border, the wait took about 1 hour for Ready Lane, less than 30 minutes for Sentri, and we all arrived at campus around 7:30 for Ready Lane and 5:00 for Sentri.
