Intellectus Foundation joined efforts with Ponce Health Sciences University (PHSU) community’s liaison office in order to coordinate preventive health services for the residents of Casa Ana Medina of the organization Amor que Sana (Love that Heals). 

Intellectus recently made an economic donation to Amor que Sana, which has taken care of homeless people for the last 20 years. The Foundation has also made possible other help resources for the organization.

Aside from the economic donations, one of the foundation’s strategies to increase its contributions to these organizations is unifying efforts between the collaborating institutions.

In this occasion it was possible, under the supervision of a medical resource coordinated by the PHSU liaison office, that Intellectus’s scholarship-holders established a visit calendar to create a medical record and monitor the health of Casa Ana Medina House residents.

With these services we look forward to supporting their preventive health care and help them have a healthier lifestyle,”commented Lorein Moya, one of the medical students that participated in the initiative.

This collaboration benefits Casa Ana Medina, which is able to provide improved services to their participants; the medical students, which learn with this practice; and, above all, the residents of Casa Ana Medina, which received preventive medical care.
