 New HMA President Conducts Health Clinic for La Boquita School

Chris Stone, MD spent his first day in Honduras seeing 75 school children and 7 adults in the new La Boquita clinic at Saira Giron's house.

Dr. Stone, a Pediatrician for Children's Mercy Hospital, has practiced for 21 years so he had an instant rapport with the children. Although most exams were normal, He diagnosed two cases of pneumonia, a case of shingles and starvation and treated many children for intestinal parasites.

This was the first time a doctor from HMA has worked with Saira who is pursuing her professional nursing degree at a Honduran University. "Saira functions almost as independently as nurse practitioners. She is eager to learn, keeps good records, knows her patients, and gives quality care," stated Stone.
