I think Brigades were a success, the participation of the population was very satisfactory, is a community where the need is medical and dental care, because as a population in which the work is needed depends on tourism most of the time, the nearest health services are at Chetumal, Q. Roo and not all people have the resources to make the trips. It is a population to be considered when planning future events talking about Health Brigades. He also thanks the community of English-speaking people mostly from Canada who accomodated us and gave us things and the facilities in the town, who together with the Group "Salud en Movimiento (Health in Motion)" made these brigades were possible and they had the success. We also thank the authorities of the University and of the respective schools of Medicine and Dentistry for the facilities as to permit the students who went to this noble cause, in which everyone had a chance to learn and apply the knowledge acquired during academic preparation, many lessons learned, as well as strengthening the camaraderie, teamwork and especially friendships.
