Kristheen Blandón: "Experience only ensures my taste for veterinary medicine."
URACCAN's veterinary medicine student at the New Guinea campus was actively involved in the day of canine and feline vaccination coordinated by the Ministry of Health (MINSA), an institution with which this study house has working partnerships.
"The vaccination campaign in coordination with MINSA is part of the institutional strengthening in the municipality," said Dr Wilberto Cruz, a full-time teacher at the New Guinea campus.
The activity involved first- to fifth-year veterinary medicine students, divided by days. For the young Kristheen Blandón, student of the first year of that career, "participating in the vaccine day also allowed me to make sutures, channel and identify parasites in canines, both external and internal", adding that "the experience only ensures my taste for veterinary medicine".
Within the neighborhoods and areas that took place the vaccination process, Jeirley Salgado, a first-year student, visited Zone 6 and the Linda Vista neighborhood with a team of his classmates and with the accompaniment of teachers, veterinary physician Wilberto Cruz and Rodrigo Jarquín.
Salgado argues that "the activity is beautiful because you do what you like, for what we are studying and we learned how to treat a dog so as not to hurt it, but also so that they do not hurt us".
The articulation work between MINSA and URACCAN is extensive and aimed at stability and health care; activities such as the canine vaccination campaign allowed practices to study in the field and hundreds of dogs vaccinated against rabies.
