Caring for Doña Paulina
UVM medical student Peter Cooch ’14 developed a significant caregiver-patient relationship with an 85-year-old indigenous Mayan woman, Doña Paulina, whom he met while volunteering for a medical clinic in the highlands of Guatemala. These photos by Jessica Eve Rattner show Cooch and Doña Paulina in the midst of treatment for her ulcerated leg in 2008.
