Veteran U.S medic provides medical care in Juarez

each time Rankin crosses into Mexico, he is on a mission to assist people who cannot afford medical care.

The veteran U.S. Army Reserves medic gained his medic skills and knowledge by working as an ER tech for four years and then switched to different health care positions.

Several years ago, a doctor in Mexico asked him to help treat people who could not afford to go to a clinic or hospital. The doctor Rankin works with wanted to stay anonymous for safety reasons.

Rankin started his mission in Nogales, Mexico, on the border with Arizona, but then moved his work to Juárez.

“Pain is a universal language, you don’t have to speak a language to find out what’s wrong with someone medically,” explained Rankin, saying the language barrier is not a problem for him. “Unless it’s invasive — but I don’t have tools for that.”
