Marshall University Medical Brigade

Hello, my name is Zach Hunter, I am a first year medical student and I have been given the oppurtunity to participate in the Marshall University School of Medicine Global Brigades trip to Honduras this summer, July 2015.  Global Brigades offers 7-9 day Medical Brigades throughout the year in Honduras, Panama and Nicaragua. 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. Each of the communities receives a brigade approximately twice a year. Between brigades,  in-country teams maintain relationships with the communities to provide follow-up and to conduct Community Health Worker (CHW) trainings to empower local leaders to sustain a consistent level of healthcare. Electronic patient records are collected for future visitations and to monitor overall community health trends.  Any donations that help fund this trip and the medicine that will be provided are greatly appreciated.  Thank you so much for your generosity and helping me to be a part of an incredible opportunity!
