Capital Ob/Gyn and VitaMed Partner to Impact Women in Nicaragua

As a team at Capital Ob/Gyn we are committed to empowering women and walking with them through all stages of life.  From local speaking engagements to overseas medical missions trips, each team member has found a unique way to contribute to women’s health beyond the walls of Capital Ob/Gyn.

Dr. Mushtaler focuses many of her efforts on educating women at her alma mater, The University of Texas at Austin.  On a recent occasion she had the privilege to speak to female members of the UT Triathlon team about women’s health, and through a relationship that began there she learned about the opportunity to sponsor the Global Medical Training mission trip to Nicaragua this January.

Capital Ob/Gyn in partnership with VitaMed has provided 750 prenatal vitamins that will be distributed through Global Medical Training to women in Nicaragua.01_ToCarol0006

Knowing they have a similar passion for the well being of women, Dr. Mushtaler called on Melissa Massey at VitaMed to join this effort.  Their quick and generous response will provide pregnant women in a severely under resourced area the chance for healthy development of their child.  VitaMed offers direct to patient supply of prenatal vitamins and iron supplements with vegan and gluten free options available at VitaMedrx.com. Their vitamins contain quatrafolate, the newest generation of folic acid supplement in prenatal vitamins.

Capital Ob/Gyn is glad to partner with Global Medical Training to raise awareness and impact healthcare locally and worldwide.  Global Medical Training is a student organization at The University of Texas at Austin that is committed to empowering students with the knowledge and awareness of the humanitarian need that exists in the world today by expanding students’ understanding of medicine and life outside the United States.  One of their primary objectives is to create awareness about the lack of access to healthcare, not only in third world countries but also in the local Austin community.  For more information on their efforts locally and internationally visit www.gmtut.com
