i started as volunteer on a trip to Guatemala with Shared Beat. I was really impressed with the impact that Shared Beat has on the health of the children at Safe Passage (Camino Segura) because of its vitamin and preventative health program. As a physician, I was amazed that the general health, and especially the dental health, of the children in the program was better than many of the children that I see in the US. Shared Beat also positively impacts their parents through an adult literacy program.

Shared Beat since its inception has had a vision to create sustainability and continuity in its programs. In the past 6 years, by supporting an ongoing educational project adjacent the GUatemala City Dump area with provision of on-site healthcare, vision care, de-worming, and vitamins we move closer to making life a little better. Supporting a full-time school nurse and a part-time physician when we are not physically present and providing health scholarships in that area as well as more rural areas, Shared Beat has been and continues to be an endeavor of hope and changes lives forever. I've personnaly cared for a 5 day old to a 92 year old. I've had the privelege of provided counseling to hundreds of diabetics, hypertensive patients, pregnant mohers, school physicals, and was able to provide the needed medications. At my side worked some of the Guatemalan scholarship recipients who will in the future fill the roles of doctor or nurse.

I am amazed by Wright and Jenny Hartsell's dedication and leadership in expanding the services available from Shared Beat. The main premise of Shared Beat is to help people become self-sufficient through education and better health care for themselves and others. The leadership by Jenny as Executive Director is resilient and creative. Her passion for humanity is admirable. Wright's involvement as a physician is genuine when it comes to providing excellent healthcare. The Board of Directors of Shared Beat is a diverse group, each individual bringing a unique set of skills to the table. It is my honor to be involved with this group.

Watching Shared Beat mature as an organization has been gratifying to me. Not only does Shared Beat has highly skilled medical professionals, the leadership has recognized the value of strategic planning sessions, sound financial planning and organizational structure. This will help ensure its continued stability toward serving the medical, health and education needs of people that need a helping hand in and near the city dump of Guatemala.

Shared Beat is providing medical care to the impoverished people of Guatemala. We partner with education reinforcement centers to improve the health of the students through health education, physical exams, medications, vitamins, and vision screening. We are committed to developing means for the community to have increased access to care. Our scholarship program allows the students to pursue study medicine and related health professions. Preventative medicine is also provided to the surrounding community. It is rewarding to return to the same communities twice yearly and watch the overall health improve each time we visit.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Return visits to Guatemala and examining the children routinely has proven that their health is improving.
