Passionate About:

I am very passionate about helping others. I am persuing a career in nursing at Lower Columbia College. This will be my second trip to Honduras. I love the people over there and am so excited to return this August to help provide the much needed care to those in need. These people are so appriciative of what we do for them because they would not get the help they need if it werent for programs such as GMB. It is such an awesome opportunity and a life changing experience. I am very blessed to be a part of it.

August 2012 Lower Columbia College Medical Brigade



Volunteer Activity Description

Volunteers on the Medical and Dental Brigades will be working closely together to provide quality health initiatives to a community that otherwise has limited access to health care. Volunteers will spend three days in a community in order to optimize the amount of time patients are able to spend with the physicians and dentists. Each patient will receive a physician consultation, teeth cleaning and a fluoride treatment as well as have access to pap smears, prostate exams and restorative dental care as necessary. Volunteers will have the opportunity to take patient vitals, obtain patient history and current symptoms, shadow and assist licensed physicians and dentists, participate in preventative education, and fill prescriptions under a licensed pharmacist. Volunteers will become familiar with the prevalent health issues in their community and learn about how to prevent and treat those illnesses. These brigades provide each volunteer with the opportunity to make a tangible impact on a specific community while gaining real life experience in the field of international medicine and dentistry.
