Peace Corps at the Two-Year Mark

I spent the first year-and-a-half of my Peace Corps Service in Moca, a town of about 60,000 in the Dominican Republic’s central Cibao region. During my time there I taught computer classes for adults and high school kids which led to a successful collaboration with the Instituto Dominicano de las Telecomunicaciones (Indotel). With the support of Indotel I led trainings for over 50 attendants of government sponsored computer labs, in how to facilitate technology-themed youth groups.

Starting in November, I began work on an electronic medical records (EMR) system at Clinica de Familia La Romana a clinic providing low-cost or free care to sex workers and HIV patients among others. The project involves an implementation of OpenMRS.
