GSF is proud of Diego, our patient-turned-volunteer from Guayaquil, Ecuador, for completing his university program. In December 2019, he graduated from Universidad Politécnica Salesiana and received his diploma (pictured above with his mother).

Ever since his first surgery in 1996, Diego and his family have been part of the GSF family. From dental care and orthodontics to additional surgical procedures as he grew, Diego has received long-term, comprehensive care from the GSF team throughout his life. He is also a dedicated volunteer with Fundacion Global Smile-Ecuador and will be joining us next week in San Salvador as a photographer. Diego's spirit and hard work demonstrate that a healthy smile *is* just the beginning!
