In 2017, Esgar came with us to Mexico and had a taste of working in a mobile unit furnished by DKT. He realized that this would be a way to expand his practice, and reach people in many locations in the largely rural state of Iowa. This year, he and Yiya planned and designed a medical trailer for vasectomy that they will be inaugurating at this year’s November 20, World Vasectomy Day.
Meanwhile, Yiya has joined the WVD team and has provided the drive, the humor and the know-how to organize these complex events, helping us succeed in everything from sharing valuable insights about the academy project to solving logistics problems.
