Magic Carpet Ride to Global Wellness
FIMRC is dedicated to improving the health of families throughout the world through its network of outpatient clinics and partnerships. FIMRC maintains a multidimensional plan which implements clinical services, extensive community outreach efforts and health education programs.
MDF had the pleasure of working with The Traveling Nurse K Chandler Rosemont for her trip to Costa Rica this past year. Chandler is a Pediatric CVICU Registered Nurse, she invests her time into ensuring her trained knowledge is put to great fortune with anyone she works with. She is sponsored by FIGS and utilizes any opportunity she comes across to help those in need around the globe.
Most of her work consists of filling prescriptions, and educating patients. Chandler made health impact videos for simple yet vital tasks needed for the public.
MDF Donated stethoscopes and sphygmomanometers for both pediatric and adult patients to help widen their outreach. Chandler shared a moving patient experience with us, it is evident she is inspired everyday .
"Something that stuck with me after my time in Costa Rica was the use of mental health resources for patients of all ages. I remember a little child coming in that had terrible anxiety and behavioral issues. FIMRC made me realize that mental health diseases also require preventive health. With their psychology program, FIMRC is helping so many children learn to cope with anxiety, stress, and change in healthy ways. This child is better off because of the resources and programs provided by FIMRC and I know he is safer with FIMRC by his side." - Chandler Rosemont
