Heaven Lei Rodriguez is organizing this fundraiser.
First off, to whoever may stumble across this campaign, I appreciate you taking the time to read this and I hope you consider helping me out! Even if that isn’t possible for any reason, I would appreciate if you could share/send this to all of your friends/family to help me get the word out!! Thank you so much for your time!! :)
Hello everyone! My name is Heaven and I have “BIG” dreams of becoming a Practitioner of Holistic Medicine. Further into my journey of healing, I plan running my own private practice or wellness clinic.
I was recently invited to attend the International Scholar Laureate Program: Delegation on Medicine & Science in China, and I was contacted as a members of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society at Odessa College!! I’m not usually interested in offers like these, but this time is different. If I were to make this trip, I would explore the practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine by learning the principals of reflexology and acupuncture, as well as the production of herbal medicine in modern China. I would also have the opportunity to visit teaching hospitals such as Guang An Men Hospital, a Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital, and Shanghai Shuguang Hospital, a Hospital which is known to combine the practice of traditional medicine with modern western medicine and technology. I will meet and attend a presentation by a leading practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as meet with peers around the world who share the same career interests as I do.
Attending a trip like this would significantly impact my career, but also impact my role as a Doctor in a field of what I truly believe is the future of medicine! This opportunity will teach me traditional practices of yesterday, modern technology in medicine today, and how to integrate the two in my career as a healer.
Because of my current situation, there is no possible way for me to fund this rewarding opportunity BEFORE these fast approaching deadlines. This is really important to me, and I’d like to say I did everything I could to make this happen, even if it doesn’t. I have applied to the scholarships offered by the program but ANY donation of ANY amount to any of the multiple fundraisers I’ll hold throughout the month( Not just through GoFund me!!) would be MUCH appreciated! I will give frequent updates to the donors of this fund so JOIN ME on this educational and culturally enriching experience!!
