Project Nino

Investigator: Mansi Desai, MD

Location(s): Mexico


The project serves children who otherwise would have very limited access to medical care. It also has had an impact on the everyday lives of the people we serve. The highlight of the project is the clinic itself. It takes place in Santiago de Tautla, a small village forty-five miles north of Mexico City. Santiago de Tautla is a very small village. Each year in August, a group of physicians, dentists, optometrists, nurses, and psychologists from Fresno turn the village elementary school into a clinic.
