Another great day at clinic! I started working in the Emergency Department rounding with Dr. Reidy in the morning. We were able to use the portable ultrasound machine on a pregnant patient and we found the fetal heart beat. In the afternoon, I rounded with Dr. Gallagher in Internal Medicine. We treated several interesting patients, one with uncontrolled diabetes and another with headaches due to untreated myopia. Clinic ended early today, so I took a walk along the Amazon river with some classmates. We stopped for several photo opportunities and shops along the boardwalk. We got caught in a bit of a thunderstorm but it ended in a double rainbow; it was beautiful! Dinner was held at a restaurant called, Mishqina, and it was absolutely delicious!
