John, one of the students of maria has created with the university of Michigan and the Colombia government a selfcare program for diabetics in colombia, south america. A great example of frugal technology and multi language cooperation to reach out to all! And a very understandable video in spanish, try it!
In his own words: “I work on public health projects in countries all over Latin America. Speaking in Spanish clearly and correctly is really important so i can get to know communities and help them plan new programs. Maria has given me a ton of help, and now I”m working with colleagues in Bolivia and Colombia. Next stop Nicaragua!! Thanks Maria! John Piette”
Maria is obviously enormous proud to help her students with such important work, helping indirectly so many Latino’s! And she can’t wait to see it happening in Nicaragua as well!
