Internship Year:

My internship with Mexfam was focused on evaluating the family planning services provided by the Mexfam clinics. With my supervisor, I visited 11 of the clinics in various parts of the country. I spent the majority of my time working in the small, agricultural community of San Luis de la Paz, Guanajuato. There, I conducted the evaluation (surveyed and interviewed female clinic users of family planning use and interviewed doctors regarding provision of family planning methods) in order to evaluate the differences between users of family planning methods from Mexfam and users of family planning methods obtained at other locations. In addition to San Luis de la Paz, I also went to San Luis Potosi, Xola, and Guadalajara to conduct the family planning evaluation in their respective Mexfam clinics.
