Mexico Shoe Drop 2009

SFM-CameraSee Pictures From the Project

January 29, 2009

A the team of volunteers handed out new and used shoes to orphanages in Mexico.

Spanish for Medical VolunteerOn Thursday January 29th Spanish for Medical and volunteers were on a mission to donate collected new and used shoes. The project started about a month ago, when an idea came to action. Headed by Russo Mutuc, Kisha Malika Lawson, Jill Hudspeth, and Josie Hudspeth the team was able to help spread the word that a project was in the works to help the kids in Mexico. Within a week, shoes from different parts of Southern California started walking in. Church members, companies, and many random people have come together for a cause and had donated about more than 300 + shoes. New shoes have also come as far as Delaware brought in on a flight from Philadelphia to Los Angeles. The story kept on growing as others opened up their humanitarian efforts to help the unfortunate ones. The biggest challenge for the used shoes collected was physically collecting mass amounts and cleaning them up, along with sorting. Plus they were coming from different locations, and the shoes have traveled the distance from Tehachapi, Santa Clarita, Lake Hughes, San Diego, and Los Angeles. Finally they were in route to Mexico at the orphanages.

This team effort has grown drastically within a three week time frame. Different companies, and volunteers has made this happen. Spanish for Medical, Spanish for Success, Canyon Creek Sports Camp, Divine by Design Angelique M Ehat Higher, Vision Church in Castaic, Country Wide Secondary Marketing Department, St. Judes Travel Department (Danna Lyons), San Diego Mesa College Women’s basketball team (Shannon Schiele, and Sally Davis)

Who Really Takes Medical Spanish?

Most Common Medical Professionals Taking Medical Spanish

In our assessment from the previous years we have been offering Medical Spanish, we have noted there are certain groups in the medical field who have participated more in the courses. Generally anyone in the medical field, who is in contact with Spanish speak people/patients, will be qualified to participate in any Spanish language courses. For the clients that participated in our programs, we have found pre-medical students, medical students, physicians in all types of practices, student nurses, and nurses. The reason for the interests, in these specific types of groups, holds a bigger interest, partly because of the contact with Spanish speaking patients. As we break down the phases or routine of a typical medical evaluation and care, we can see why these groups are more inclined to participate in the programs. When Spanish speaking patients need medical attention, they first go through a physician, afterwards the physician passes on specific job tasks to nurses or technicians. Nurses are always in constant contact and communication with the patients. In addition, patients also participate in tests and certain therapy, but will most likely be in less contact and communication. Other groups such as social services, physical therapy, and occupational therapy we find less signing up in the programs. We are not really sure why, as they too are in close communication with patients.
