Ms. TJ has been a clinic patient since the clinic opened its doors.
In spite of personal health problems and multiple family crises Ms.
J. has managed to keep a smile in her face and served as inspiration
Ms. J received special medical training which she has not been
able to use due to language barriers This has not stopped her
on her desire to assist others with peer education, encouragement
and even transportation assistance so they can better benefit
of clinic and community’s available services. Her degree
or training has not stopped her from honest work such as work
in the fields, packing houses and even sold produce in the Flea
Market and wherever possible.
When the clinic staff were able to obtain funding for a special
program which would require the assistance of clinic patients
to serve as peer educator, the choice was easy. Ms. J. was chosen
as one of these patients. The result of this selection has been
a positive one for all involved. Ms. J. is now not only a clinic
patient but also a known and respected peer educator. Congratulations,
Ms. J. You are a special ODHC patient.
