Come Join us Tuesday, August 13: Wis. Cuba Coalition Meeting features special guest appearance by visiting WI Medical student just back from Cuba

Tuesday, August 13, 7pm: 1) See a short video on Cuba’s partnership with students in over 80 nations, including 100 U.S. students, studying to become doctors debt free, in return for their promise to return home and work in an underserved community. 2) Meet & join an informal discussion with Olive, one of two WI women currently enrolled as students in Cuba’s acclaimed Latin American School of Medicine (ELAM).

Everyone interested is welcome to join us at this & all our monthly Wisconsin Cuba Coalition meetings, at Central United Methodist Church, 639 N. 25th St., at Wisconsin Ave., MKE 53233.   We meet monthly, on the second Tuesday.


Olive and I made it safely back to Havana and through the airport without problems. We are transitioning back into the swing of things here in Cuba adjusting to the heat and the school schedule we have to keep. We have started our OB/GYN rotation in the hospital and had our first 12 hr shift on the labor and delivery floor last Saturday and have another shift this coming Saturday. We wanted to again thank everyone for the love and support we received this summer being back home in Milwaukee. We appreciate all the hugs, smiles, thoughts, prayers and monetary donations. We are anxiously awaiting the results of Olive’s board exam and I am still studying to hopefully take my exam before the year’s end.

Muchísimas gracias por todo.
