Support medical mission work around the globe through this fund.
The Short Term Experiences in Global Health Fund provides critical financial support for international medical mission trips and experiences.
These student volunters typically provide care in rural areas that have limited resources and fragmented healthcare. Through these experiences, students learn how to provide culturally-competent care in a global healthcare setting, including working in an interdisciplinary team environment, setting up “mobile” pharmacies and clinics, dispensing medications, counseling patients, and assisting providers with medication selection. These experiences not only give them hands-on training, but teach a level of compassion and patient care that cannot be learned in a classroom.
The fund helps offset travel expenses for students, and send them with enough medical supplies to treat all of those in need that they encounter.
