What this is about: Hello Everyone! This year I have been given the opportunity to help the needy in Honduras. I am part of the Global Bridgades team that will be going to Honduras this August. In this team there will be medical and dental professionals with whom I will work closely to provide quality health care in a community where there is not enough medical assistance or awareness.
How it will help: I will spend about a week there working with physicians who will provide each patient with medical assistance such a physician consultation, public health talk, and prescribed medicines. I will personally have the opportunity to take patient vitals and take part in preventative education as well as fill prescriptions with the help of a licensed pharmacist.
Why you should get involved: With about 80% of people in need of quality healthcare in Honduras, this trip will help make you and I a large impact on this community. In addition, such communities with limited access to healthcare will become more familiar with prevention and treatment of the illnesses. So let's do our part on this planet and help away!
