Medical Trip to Nicaragua in July!

Hola! Please support my journey to the island of Ometepe in Nicaragua to intern at a naturopathic medical clinic! The organization, Natural Doctors International (, provides the community with free naturopathic medical care by volunteering physicians.

The program fee is $1300 for a 10-day internship. 

Currently, airfare is averaging $800 for a roundtrip ticket from Portland, OR, to Managua, Nicaragua.

I'd also like to explore a medicinal farm in Belize after my stay in Nicaragua. It's an experiential learning center and an awesome location for medicinal plant research. The organization is called Maya Mountain Research Farm ( 

It costs $200/wk to intern. I plan to intern for up to 2-4 weeks right before the start of fall quarter in September. 

Many thanks for your consideration and support!
