Construction on a $1 million medical facility in an impoverished corner of Guatemala is slated to begin next month, marking the University of Colorado School of Medicine's first long-term presence in a developing nation.
Physicians and students from CU spent last July in the region assessing the health needs of the population, doing physicals and testing children for parasites and anemia.
They found cases of kidney disease, infections and malnutrition. Ten-year-olds looked like 6-year-olds, tiny with matchstick arms. Scrawny dogs poked their heads inside makeshift clinics looking for scraps of food before drifting off.
