Apple iBooks in Guatemala

Flouride Research in Guatemala

Hi Dave,

We are in Guatemala City after a very successful mission trip to the village of Aguacate.  The girl in the picture is a very grateful community health care worker who is using a Computer Reach iBook computer to record the Fluoride treatments that we trained her to conduct on a weekly basis at the local school. She administers the treatment at the local school for about 400 children. It is important for her to record the names and dates of the treatment so we can follow up on effectiveness of the program. She is the young lady I was telling you about that will be invaluable to our clinic in the village.
