U.S. Medical Mission in Sangre Grande

The weekend September 1-3, a U.S. Medical Mission led by Trini/American Dr. Reynold S. Agard, was in Trinidad to offer free medical services in the Sangre Grande community.

The health care clinic, which was based at the Sangre Grande Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Church was comprised of 120 physicians, nurses and other health professionals from the Christiana Care Health System headquarters in Wilmington, Delaware, U.S.A. It was an initiative of nonprofit Hands International, where Dr. Agard is a director. A similar mission was held last year in southern Trinidad.

Free check ups, diagnostic testing, medical counseling, sleep disorder evaluation, psychological, dental clinic, counseling and lectures on various topics were offered.

Military Liaison Col. Claudia Carrizales gave remarks on behalf of the U.S. Embassy during the clinic’s opening ceremony on Friday, September 1.
