Hola a todos!
I am writing with some very exciting and much anticipated news….
After a year plus some of patiently waiting on the American government I have been invited to serve as a Peace Corps volunteer in Ecuador! (Geographically, that means I will be in South America in a country located AT the equator between Columbia and Peru.) I will be leaving on June 18th . For those of you not familiar with the Peace Corps, it's a 27-month program. The first three month I will be in training and from there I will be assigned to a community where I will live and work for 2 years. Que bueno!
My program is rural public health and my official job title is health/nutrition extension which basically means maternal and child health care, but more specifically my time will be spent…
*Performing Well Baby check-ups (i.e. vaccines, weight, nutrition, etc.).
*Promoting Breastfeeding to Moms.
*Counseling couples in Family planning.
I am so exciting for this adventure!! Thank you all for your love and support. I will keep you updated as I begin this journey.
