SRU MEDLIFE Medical Mission Trip

My name is Hannah Bowman, and I belong to the MEDLIFE Chapter at Slippery Rock University. MEDLIFE is a non-profit organization that sets up Mobile Clinics in Peru, Ecuador, Nicaragua, and Tanzania. Mobile Clinics seek to provide primary healthcare by providing doctors, dentists, gynecologists, medications, and educational workshops to those in rural or impoverished areas who otherwise may not have access to medical services. 

 

Once again, I will be attending a MEDLIFE service learning trip. This school year it will be in Tena, Ecuador from January 4-12, 2020, during which I will complete 40 total hours of service including shadowing local doctors and medical professionals in various stations such as triage, pharmacy, dental care, gynecology, and general medicine. I, along with my MEDLIFE Chapter, will contribute by making a sustainable difference in the local community members’ lives by providing valuable health care assistance as well as participating in a development project improving the infrastructure of the community.

 

MEDLIFE coordinates the efforts of motivated students, local medical professionals, and communities in need in order to make Mobile Clinics happen. The purpose of Mobile Clinics is multi-lateral: to improve the overall well-being and health of the community, to develop the existing infrastructure so as to ensure sustainable change, and to educate and prepare students for future careers in international development and global health. 

 

The individual price for me to participate in the Mobile Clinic is $2500, which includes flights, meals, hotel nights, transportation, medicines, hire medical professionals, coordinate communities and build a social development project. With your sponsorship, which in turn funds MEDLIFE Clinics and Patient Follow Up Care, you will be directly impacting MEDLIFE’s capacity to serve the communities we partner with.
