San Diego, CA

Passionate About:

My name is Jasmine Sims and I am a Senior at San Diego Christian College majoring in Biological Science: Pre-Medical. My goal is to be a missionary surgeon with a Cardio Thoracic specialty. I have a heart for people and a passion for medicine. I have been in the realm of medicine for a number of years as a Certified Nursing Assistant and a Certified Surgical Technologist, as well as in the sphere of global missions in five different countries outside the United States.

My desire in working with Volunteers Around the World is to give students not just a hands on experience in medicine, but a firsthand experience in helping people in need of medical care who otherwise would be at a loss. I am super excited to be leading the 2nd global trip for our chapter to Jarabacoa, Dominican Republic this summer! Balance and diligence are my focus as I work to prepare the hearts and minds of our team members, and my hope is that it will be a long lasting legacy of service through medicine for students to come!

San Diego Christian College Medical Outreach trip to the Dominican Republic, July 2019



Volunteer Activity Description

Join the San Diego Christian College chapter as they lead a Medical Outreach trip to the Dominican Republic this upcoming summer! Volunteers will work in mobile medical clinics, where they will have the opportunity to intake patients, conduct public health surveys, take vitals, shadow local physicians, work in the pharmacy, teach education classes, and much more! If you’re interested in joining, contact us for more information!

VAW at San Diego Christian College will be opening up mobile medical clinics for local communities during their time in the Dominican Republic.

One of the most exciting and important parts of volunteering with VAW is bringing medication to the less fortunate. In 2018, VAW treated over 35,000 patients and we aspire to treat over 45,000 in 2019. One of the things that make our mobile clinics unique is that we not only triage and diagnose patients, but also provide them with the basic medications needed. Fundraising for medications is a huge part of creating a successful mobile clinic to help the local communities with effective care.

**Note: airfare goal will be updated once flights are purchased, tentatively the week of March 4-8
