Volunteer Activity Description
Volunteers on the Jesuit Collaborative Global Brigades Pilot will be working closely together to provide quality health initiatives to a community that otherwise has limited access to health care. This brigade is focusing on International Service Immersion and will be a collaborative St. Louis University, Loyola University Chicago, Creighton and George Town. Volunteers will spend eight days experiencing Medical, Public Health and Environmental related projects in one community.
During the Medical Brigade 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.
