So it was brought to my attention that a few details were left out of my first post. First and foremost, when am I going?

At the clinics, we're hoping to see between 200-150 people every day. We will be doing basic health teaching around dental hygiene, boiling water/water safety, and basic person hygiene. We're expecting some long days that roll with the sun as the locations may or may not have electricity. Clinics will start at 0830 (meaning we'll be setting up at 0700) and finishing up at around 1730 so that we can make it back to our hotel as a group before dark.
Sooo.... what do I have to do before I go? Well. Raise some funds, get some shots, pack some stuff, aaaaaaand don't freak out about the spiders!

I'm trying to convince my husband to come with.... to be my body guard against the 6- or 8- legged natives.... He's not buying in to my plan so far.
Please stay tuned for more news, info, and fundraising events!
