Health Fair – San Clemente

Today there was a health fair in the small fishing village of San Clemente.  Our friends Eida and Meriya were instrumental in getting the word out around town, mostly by word of mouth.  They had a flier with them, but only 1 flier.  (In true Ecuadorian fashion).

As you can see, each test was only $2 or $3 each.  Many quality tests were provided.  These costs are for everyone, not just people with or without insurance.  It seems that the government is investing in good health care for its people here.

Quite a few people were lined up for the affordable exams.

Like most doctor offices, there was a typical wait…

Many thanks to my mother Libby Rush for the information.

Figuring it out… more healthy now…

  1. Love your posts but a suggestion if you don’t mind. If there is any chance you could post these goings on, i.e.. the circus, health fair, etc. before the fact and not after the fact for those of us who live on the outskirts and don’t venture out as much as the rest of you. Or, a heads up of any kind to keep us informed of goings on we might not know about would be much appreciated. Would loved to have participated in these. Thanks
