As you may recall, there was a huge hurricane in Puerto Rico not long ago. At that time, this was mentioned all over the news. Everyone was talking about how people were losing power and access to essential living necessities during the hurricane. However, after the hurricane, it sort of lost its appeal in the media and people stopped talking about it on the news. However, that does not mean that all is fine and dandy in Puerto Rico. Although the hurricane has been over for a while, the effects of the hurricane are still present in the everyday lives of all of the citizens of Puerto Rico.
You see, many hospitals and medical clinics have been ruined by the hurricane. They do not have the proper equipment anymore to treat all the people that need to be treated. For that reason, many people who are living in Puerto Rico are unable to get access to good healthcare or to the medications that they need.
Innovacare Health, led by Rick Shinto and Penelope Kokkinides, is on a mission to help improve Puerto Rico. Penelope Kokkinides even had a meeting with Donald Trump to discuss how Puerto Rico can be helped.
Innovacare Health set up thirty mobile clinics around the country. The goal of these clinics is to provide easy access to medical care and doctors to the residents of Puerto Rico. there are expert doctors on site to help examine patients and help them live better lives. In a big shopping mall, Innovacare Health also set up a clinic, called Recargate, which means recharge. Over twenty thousand people visited that clinic alone.
At the clinics, there are pharmacies on site where patients can get their prescriptions filled out. In other words, the clinics are a one stop shop for all of their medical needs. The reason Innovacare does this is that not all pharmacies are stocked already with all of the medications that a lot of their patients need. They, therefore, decided to just set up pharmacies on site right by their clinics.
At the clinics, there are also mental health professionals who are going to help you assess your mental health situation and see if you are suffering from anything such as depression or anxiety. Many elderly people suffer from stress after a hurricane, and a percentage of them even die from all the stress.
