Achievements

Dr. Dorn gave 7 presentations to 4th-5th graders and high school Biology and Spanish classes in Larchmont, NY the week of November 6, 2017. Some of these students are involved in the Kids for World Health Foundation and have done educational and fund raising activities to support the work of Dr. Dorn in Guatemala. Funds they have donated have provided nutritional supplements for patients receiving treatment for Chagas and supplies to help improve people’s houses in Guatemala to reduce their risk of getting Chagas disease.
