preciate if you could donate to help me attend this trip. It does not have to be a large amount and every penny counts!! This trip will provide medical help to children and families in the poorest areas where medical aid is not readily available. Volunteers spend three days in a community in order to optimize the amount of time patients are able to spend with the physicians and dentists. Patient receives a physician consultation, public health talk, and prescribed medicines as well as have access to PAP smears, prostate exams and restorative dental care as necessary. Children, in addition, receive teeth cleaning, a fluoride treatment, and vitamins necessary for proper growth and development.

e is to work as a physician in several years and I just want to be an inspiration and a helping hand to anyone in need. I want to part part of the movement that will make this world a better place. I believe that God put us on this earth for a reason and though it is not perfect, working as that Good Samaritan will help improve the lives and minds of many! I love people, good company, and of course my studies (except Chemistry!!!) and I'm glad that I'm holding onto and was accepted into this great opportunity to be a Medical Brigader!
