Lauren's Global Medical Brigade
Organized by: Lauren Rasmussen
Hello everyone!! I wanted to let you know about a very interesting and rewarding opportunity that I have found for some real world medical experience. As a junior studying Pre Physical Therapy I am always looking for opportunities to put to use all of the hard work and knowledge gained from my education at Central Michigan University. I am lucky enough to be participating in a great opportunity with a student organization on my campus that enables me to help others while further developing my own skills in the medical/healthcare services. On this service trip I have the chance to personally work with under-resourced communities in either Honduras or Nicaragua! This spring break I will be traveling with a group of 40 students from Central Michigan University with a organization called Global Medical/Dental Brigades. Global Medical/Dental Brigades is a part of the world’s largest student-led health and sustainable development organization called Global Brigades. Each year Global Brigades mobilizes thousands of university students around the world to participate in 9 different skills based programs to improve the quality of life in under-resourced communities. On my upcoming brigade, I will be working hand-in-hand with doctors and community members. I am so excited for this eye opening opportunity! I cant wait to make a difference in others lives while also gaining valuable experience. Please join me in supporting the work that I will be doing in the underserved communities in either Honduras or Nicaragua. Any support you can give will make a tremendous difference.
