My name is Janett Villegas, and I am a third year at The University of Texas at Austin getting my baccalaureate degree in Human Development and Family Sciences and getting my pre-requisites for the Accelerated-Master Degree Nursing Program. My career goal is to beomce a Nurse Practioner and specialize in pediatric healthcare. Through Global Medical Training UT, a pre-med and health student organziation on camus, I have the wonderful opportunity to travel to Nicaragua and provide free health care to the poor and underprivlaged communites of this contry in January 2014. I will be spending a whole week in Managua, Nicaragua with a team of undergraduate students that will be offering 6 clinic days of diagnosing and treating patients.
I am asking for your help to help me make this trip possible. The money being raised will be going towards my trip to Nicaragua and back, the stay, and the medicial supplies being used during the clinic days. I am extremely excited about this trip, because I have the opportunity to give free health care to those people who probably have never seen a doctor or can't affort it. This trip is a blessing for me, and I hope to change someone's life while I'm there. Anything helps! Thank you!
