Still Chugging Along

Thanks to everyone for making last Wednesday's meeting productive. We will be returning to Juventino Rosas in summer 2008 and including new and old communities and friends. Right now, we are nailing down logistical details. The dates for the project will likely be June 9-July 26, though some folks may possibly go down earlier to start setting things up.

We expect to continue with cardiovascular and diabetes screening, and possibly add a urinalysis component. A focus on more robust women's support groups will target depression in the Juventino Rosas area. We are exploring the idea of a community garden project as a health intervention and would appreciate expertise that any agricultural experts in the Chapel Hill, NC or Juventino Rosas, Gto. regions can offer.
