The University of Alabama at Birmingham has offered it's students the opportunity for a Medical Brigade! During a Medical Brigade, volunteers have the opportunity to take vitals and patient history in triage, shadow licensed doctors in medical consultations, and assist in a pharmacy under the direction of licensed pharmacists. We will also be building sanitation units for the community. We will be going to Nicaragua on April 29th of this year! As a pre-nursing major, I believe this will do wonders for me as I will get do what I love alongside tending to those who do not have access to medicine as we do here in the United States. My personal goal is to raise $1,800 for the trip! Any donation amount, big or small, is appreciated as this will be the experience of a lifetime! Last day for donations will be April 9th! I look forward to sharing my experience with you after the trip!!
