Project CURA India 2018

This summer we will be travelling to India with Project CURA! Project CURA is an entirely student run organization within the Creighton University School of Medicine that enables first year medical students to travel abroad to underserved countries and utilize our preliminary medical knowledge. Additionally, Project CURA provides health education and primary prevention to local communities. The pillars on which this organization stands are the same ideals which it seeks to instill in Creighton’s emerging physicians: simple living, increased awareness of the choices that the poor are forced to make, cultural sensitivity, immersion in a community with values and ideas different from those that Creighton students are accustomed to, service and community. For years, Project CURA has been sending students on international service trips in a number of different countries. We believe that direct exposure to other cultures by living within foreign communities in a service capacity creates physicians who are comfortable working with culturally diverse patients. These trips represent a unique opportunity for Creighton students to build on their medical education in countries with different healthcare systems.

While in India, we will be involved in various activities including volunteering in health camps for children of migrant construction workers in the city of Pune. There we will be performing check-ups and providing health services to many who lack regular access to vital heath care.

Your donation will go towards the purchase of medical supplies to be utilized at the health camps, as well as to helping cover our travel expenses as we work closely with these disadvantaged communities.

Our group members, as well as the patients we serve would be so grateful for whatever donation you are able to make. Thank you!
