Maria Cespedes, R.N. - Nurse

mariamugMaria is at the clinic throughout the week to provide basic health care when the doctors aren't available. Maria's abilities surprise us every day. So far Maria has casted legs, stitched up cuts, intubated patients, and provided emergency care in the back of a pickup when a car crashed nearby. Maria also teaches many classes at the clinic. She is training our Nurses' Aides as well as providing classes on Basic Health. She helps patients manage their illnesses, such as providing diabetic patients with information on how to control their carbohydrate intake.
