SHARED BEAT
July 1, 2012

Shared Beat is an extraordinary organization characterized by wise, compassionate and dedicated leadership. I have worked as a volunteer pediatrician in a variety of international health settings over the last 20 years and find Shared Beat to provide the most thoughtful and comprehensive approach to health care support and delivery in an underserved setting that I have witnessed. The organization has a deep commitment to providing longitudinal care with community involvement and leadership. To that end, the group raises funds to support a full-time Guatemalan nurse at the school clinic with additional support from a Guatemalan pediatrician. The state-side volunteers arrive several times a year in a supportive role only. Communication regarding clinical needs is maintained between Guatemalan staff and the Shared Beat leadership between the visit intervals. Additionally, Shared Beat provides scholarship funds for those students graduating from the Safe Passage school who are interested in pursuing health care careers. These students, who have grown up in the abject poverty of the Guatemala city dump, are encouraged and supported to pursue their goals of service back to the community. The Shared Beat group achieves amazing continuity of care through a medical record system and work with a comprehensive team of partners. This is an exemplary organization with a long record of high level service and wonderful vision and heart.
