Review for Shared Beat, Boerne, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am proud to serve on the Board of Shared Beat and more especially participate actively in its mission of service in Guatemala. Since the inception, prevention of disease and improved nutrition have been supported by its programs. Partnering to provide the medical support for educational non-profits has created real synergism: Safe Passage, People for Guatemala, Vamos Adelante, and Planting Seeds. Shared Beat has successfully seen the graduation of healthcare students thru its scholarship support and has provided funds for the treatment of acute illness among students and their families when the need has arisen. Shared Beat volunteers have provided service for 46,000 plus hours and direct medical care to over 13,000 patient contacts since its inception. It is an incredible organization.

Review for Shared Beat, Boerne, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.
