June  2010

One plane went down a day early, to stay on the Cadeje side. The majority came down on Friday to stay on the Mulege side.  Louis Beacham flew down on Friday, with Stu Macpherson, from San Diego, to the Pacific side.  The weather for the trip was cooler than the typical June weather.

The medical side, with Dr. Kevin Hutton, saw about 30 patients, assisted by nurse practitioners Myra  Cochran and Elizabeth Soderburg. Triage and translation were done by Susan Grupe and Alison Locke.  Margo Kenney and Alexander Broom helped with blood pressures and other vitals. The pharmacy was staffed by Nancy Callahan and Patsy Hodges, with help from Chris Hutton and Maureen Arcuri.

The  Dental Clinic was busy, with  Dr. Stu Macpherson doing root canals and fillings while Dr.  John Grube did extractions, fillings and delivered some of Dick Kline’s denture cases.  Marilyn Zellet did translation and triage while Karen Yule and Nathan Soderburg did the sterilization. Larry Cochran and Amanda Arcuri assisted chairside.
