On May 17th, the Maternal and Child Module (MAMI) at the Clínica de Familia celebrated all the work it has done on behalf of our community during the last 10 years. This activity was led by Lic. Hilda Peguero and was held in the MAMI conference room with the participation of the center’s staff, as well as the authorities of the Dr. Francisco A. Gonzalvo Hospital, the Provincial Health Directorate, employees of the La Romana Clínica de Familia and its board of directors, among others.
The Maternal and Child Annex Module was founded in 2008 thanks to the collaboration between Dr. Leonardo Felix from the Hospital Director Dr. Francisco Gonzalvo and the founder of La Romana Family Clinic, Dr. Stephen Nicholas. They agreed to offer high-quality services to teens in a friendly and confidential space along with the guidance of trained personnel. The event was organized to celebrate its growth in services, personnel, and users over the last these ten years.
Currently, the MAMI continues to offer specialized services for teens up to 19 years old, including prenatal care, family planning, gynecology, sonography, pediatrics, a consultation services for boys, among other services and provides sex education programs in schools and the community. The MAMI is already recognized as a national model in terms of work and education with adolescents.
