In January we left for Guadalajara, Mexico, to join an international group of prolotherapists for a week-long mission. Dr David de la Mora arranges this "brigada" annually, to help many Mexicans obtain treatment who otherwise would not be able to afford it. The group treated more than 1000 patients, had fun, experienced daily education times, exchanged experiences and techniques, and we feel blessed to have been included. This is one of the HHPF's (Hackett Hemwall Patterson Foundation) organised medical missions, led by the very capable Mary Doherty. This year in Mexico we had 5 Canadian physicians, many Americans, and also doctors from Mexico, Puerto Rico, Turkey and Italy volunteering! Here is the Canadian team goofing around, and also a photo of all the doctors volunteering.
