Alex Miranda – 8/19

Clinic today was probably the longest yet most rewarding day thus far. My day was spent in radiology and General medicine. While getting into the groove of seeing patients, I feel like the reality of our aid and limitations sank in. How did this happen and how did I not see it before? There are patients seeking treatments for illnesses that are beyond our means; patients explaining of harsh work conditions and not realizing the harm that is being done to their bodies. I want to do more. I want to spend more time educating each patient but I know that is not possible. It’s tough but I also know that we are helping. The patients have expressed so much gratitude and their smile while leaving clinic could be worth more than gold if possible. Many have not sought medical attention in years yet they put their trust in us. We have a few days left and I look forward to what more lies ahead.
