 All is well in Ensenada. Today, we surveyed around 200 women in local clinics and hospitals. The questionnaire we designed we designed in a manner that will "hopefully" give us a  better understanding of the gaps in education pertaining to cervical cancer. Yesterday was the most amazing part of the trip so far. I was able to sit in on a birth, perform two vaginal examinations to determine cervix dilation and assist in performing two ultrasounds.  Unfortunately, I woke up with a chest cold yesterday and haven't felt well since. However, I do not plan on letting a little cold get me down. Tomorrow we will be presenting our findings from the survey to local government officials. Stay tuned to find out what we have learned about the health disparities in Ensenada.

Until then Adios.
