His university studies were done at the Autonomous University of Honduras in Tegucigalpa followed by social service with the Ministry of Public Health of Honduras. For the last 15 years Dr. Tino has been working in rural areas, serving the neediest population who do not have access to health services.
For the Foundation, Dr. Tino has led our medical outreach efforts heading medical teams to remote villages, training local mid-wives to become the first line of health services, and providing a variety of training chats on such subjecgts as: personal hygiene, breast self-examination, the importance of Pap tests, sexuality, teenage pregnancy, AIDS, and others. These lectures are tailored to both the adult poopulation and to the teenagers.
