Who are we?
We are a group of PA students, PA-Cs, and MDs from the Boston area. Together we will be working for 5 days in clinics with Nicaraguan physicians who guide our medical efforts within the Chacraseca region of Nicaragua. Another project will be involve building a house for a family in the community. We are working with FNEI to provide quality medical service in this area, and are very excited about the opportunity to work towards increasing global access to quality healthcare.
We are traveling with FNEI to Nicaragua to provide sustainable and efficient medical work at a different clinic each day for the week of our stay. During the week, we will travel to clinics and work alongside the local medical professionals to best serve the communities in solidarity with their resources and their needs.
We will not only be providing medical care to these populations, but we will also be engaging in well-visits and health education lessons in order to increase both the health care awareness and the self care aspects of sustainability.
These projects are important to further the access of health care and to instill continuing health education throughout this rural area. While at the same time, these experiences will allow for us to expand our own understanding of health as future and current medical professionals.
How can you help?
Your donations will directly contribute to purchasing prescription medicines, vitamins, medical supplies, and educational supplies needed for each clinic we visit. We will need a minimum of $5000 to purchase all necessary materials for every patient in need.
Your support is much appreciated by us students and each community we will be working with!
