On Saturday, June 14, 2014, the Dr. Terry and Barbara Davis Upendo Clinic, in partnership with Family Health Medical Center, hosted a screening outreach event. The event was free for all women who participated. Over the course of the day, 80 women were screened. The majority of women had never been tested for cervical cancer before, making this opportunity both valuable and unique. Women with positive or abnormal screening results were referred to Family Health Medical Center for further assessment and treatment, extending the benefit of this outreach beyond a single day.
Earlier this year, on Saturday March 1, 2014, the Dr. Terry and Barbara Davis Upendo Clinic hosted a free medical camp. The camp was located at Nderi Shopping Center, about five kilometers from Rafiki Children’s Center. The purpose of the camp was to provide community outreach and health screening, as well as to promote the services offered at Rafiki’s Upendo Health Clinic. Services included consultation for chronic or acute health care needs, basic laboratory testing, and medications. The camp was a huge success as we were able to see 147 patients throughout the day. Specific outcomes and the breakdown of patient demographics are provided in the report posted below.
