Since the first class of Adelante Mujer students took the Hippocratic Oath on December 12, 2014, each new doctor has been presented a Littmann stethoscope as a graduation gift. We would pack them into our suitcases when we travelled to Nicaragua and observe the smiles, even tears, as each doctor received her gift. With the pandemic still limiting travel, our devoted On-site Coordinator, Kathy Levy, purchased the treasures in Nicaragua and blessed each doctor with a piece of medical equipment that will enhance her work, thanks to Adelante Mujer donors.
Doctors who convened together for the presentation are:
Doctors Keyla, Jenny, Jazmin, Mercy, and Allison
Individuals who could not join the group are:
Doctors Judith and Maikelin
One of our doctors who received a stethoscope-gift in 2014 told me that another doctor once borrowed her stethoscope and asked her, “Where did you get this? I could hear so much better!”Hopefully, owning a fairly good stethoscope will help our doctors hear a little better and deliver better care because they have more clarity about the sounds within each patient
