Foundation Partners with Texas Team for future of nursing


Last year a dedicated team of nurses in El Paso approached the Paso del Norte Foundation to partner on an initiaitive to support and advance nursing in the region. The members of the "Texas Team Upper Rio Grande Region" are part of the Campaign for Action. The Campaign envisions a health care system where all Americans have access to high-quality care, with nurses contributing to the full extent of their capabilities. The Texas Team has been busy ever since organizing conferences, training opportunities and events (including Nurses Day at the Chihuahuas) to promote the future of nursing in our region. Learn more.

 FEMAP Takes Medicine to Mariginalized Communities

FEMAP's Mobile Medical Unit has for years been acting as a makeshift health clinic dedicated to providing early detection and and treatment of cervical cancer amongst women living in the marginalized communities of Ciudad Juarez. In 2014, the Mobile Medical Unit was one of the beneficiaries of the Paso del Norte Foundation Challenge Fund program. Thanks to the grant, the Unit now functions as a proper small clinic on wheels. Along with the Unit FEMAP's dedicated Promotoras (Community Volunteer Health Promoters) work with a handful of doctors to bring much needed health services to women and families who lack access to clinics, information or resources. In 2014, 26 health fairs were conducted and the following screenings were facilitated; 616 diabetes, 654 cervical cancer, 612 cardiovascular, 618 bone density. To learn more about FEMAP, go to femap.org.
