Hey guys, how are you doing? Have you heard about Doctors without borders (MSF)? well, they are coming this time to volunteer with us, so it will be nice and interesting having people from both organizations, both, looking to get a better world...

Well, as many (maybe a few) of you know, I am a physician, and well, we are trying to help the community. In the past events we had some CSers coming to the events and we had so much fun, huh Lily and Lonnie, Ovidio?

I work for UCLA and we are promoting cardiovascular screenings and also a CHAGAS test (will explain below) to the latin community every month.


Like hundred years ago, a disease was discovered in Brazil, then, this disease is transmited by the bite of one insect called Chinche (kissing bug) and transmits a parasite called T. Cruzi, this one with the time can cause Heart problem, Colon problems and Esophageal problems, even, leading to dead if not treated.

The symptoms are vague and can be detected only by EKG and blood screening.

In our outreach we do FOR FREE echocardiograms, ekgs and the blood screening, as well as cholesterol and glucose looking that everybody is ok.
This is a non profit outreach, so, we need a lot of help from volunteers, recently two of our CSers came and help out and we had a good time.

Bilingua people (Spanish and something else lol) is encouraged but not required (yeah, we will find something else to do for you).

So if you are intersted email me back here and we will discuss where this is going to be and everything else.

We have one day this month.. AUGUST 16TH 2009, IN Pacoima, CA. and AUGUST 23rd in SUN VALLEY, CA.

Guys this is great and we can all help to each other in order to have a better world.

If you feel like coming, let me know ok, then, ?I will send out the information.


Salvador.

You gotta eat anyway right?

This is the OC Regular Monthly CS Event! Gathering starts every Third Tuesday of the month at 7pm till when the travelers take the locals to their salvation.

THIS IS OUR FREEDOM EDITION!

This meeting venue may move from time to time to accomodate other CSers in the North, Mid, and South of OC. But hey, feel free to Exchange CDs, 8 tracks, surfboards, language interpretation services, ideas, inner thoughts, friends, clothes, cellphone numbers, travel plans, hosts, guests, drinks, opinions, gossips, food, hugs ...or whatever is Hot and Sexy in the OC!

Everybody who embraces the couchsurfing spirit is welcome to join, even last minute! Get to know what are the other perspectives about couchsurfing around the world, meet some locals and create your own way of enjoying OC from their advice, find travel mates, or just have a good time with all these friends that you don't know yet (you can also bring your own friends and introduce them to the meeting part of couchsurfing!)

Due to the number of hosts/travelers, it's also a good place to ask for a last-minute couch.

WE WILL BE RIGHT BY THE BAR AREA. LOOK FOR A CRAZY AND NOISY GROUP.
