Ruth's Message

I am in the field of communication disorders and through this trip I hope to gain more knowledge in different type of disorders people may suffer from. Through my service I have to make an impact in each individuals life.

Volunteer Activity Description

Set activity description to state:
We will be traveling to Nicaragua to provide medical/dental/veterinary if applicable to underserved populations.
We utilize multiple clinic sites in various geographic locations, and travel considerably. These are moderately difficult trips. The students who participate in these trips are generally healthy, both emotionally and physically. In general, they possess a strong sense of personal spirituality and purpose, a confident awareness of their intellectual gifts, and a caring attitude. They seem particularly motivated to acquire special knowledge and skills, and a desire then to apply themselves actively to the service of others.

GMT physicians-dentists supervise all the healthcare aspects, see patients along with the students, and teach them by very active engagement in the total healthcare process. Professionals provide topical lectures, end of the day group sessions and spontaneous discussions about specific cases and general problems e.g. lack of basic disease prevention and public health measures, tropical diseases, lack of education, cultural aspects, poverty, etc. We discuss this especially within the context of healthcare professionals living on a planet with millions of people having minimal or no access to healthcare, widespread poverty, inadequate diets, unhealthy living conditions, and often-lacking humane treatment.

Please join us as a volunteer or help support our mission!
