This is going to be mixed post because my weekend was busy. This weekend has gone by so fast, but it has been a good one!
Saturday I went to Horse Cave, KY for a Feria de Salud or Health Fair for the Hispanics in the community. It was a really great experience because I got to use my Spanish and meet wonderful medical volunteers that do this for free. At the beginning we helped them with their paper work- asking them about their medical conditions and the reason why they were there. Many of them had never seen a doctor before. Afterwards, I was assigned to work with the eye exams. I worked with a very nice older man. Pretty much the whole time I was telling the person to put their forehead forward and click the button. Then I told them to tell me what letters they could see. Over half of them had some type of vision problem. Some were really severe that I couldn't believe that could live day to day with such blurry vision. I stayed for almost 4 hours and headed back to Bowling Green. On the way back I got to ride with one of my Spanish professors which was fun, because she is such a sweet lady! (Plus before we even left the professors took us out to a Mexican restaurant which was nice!)
