AN OPPORTUNITY FOR INTERNATIONAL HEALTH IMMERSION: SEND A HUCM STUDENT TO ETHIOPIA

AN OPPORTUNITY FOR INTERNATIONAL HEALTH IMMERSION: SEND A HUCM STUDENT TO ETHIOPIA

This summer, students from Howard University College of Medicine (HUCM) will spend three weeks at the University of Gondar College of Medicine and Health Sciences in Ethiopia for a service and cultural immersion trip. During this trip, students will be paired with physicians to learn more about and assist with administering quality and culturally competent care in a resource-poor environment. Students intend to collaborate with healthcare professinals to provide care and deliver donated medical supplies and medication to community health centers in need. Additionally, the students will bring medical textbooks and relevant resources for their student colleagues. 

You can help support the students on their trip by contributing to their travel expenses. A donation of $70 will cover the cost of a visa application. A gift of $200 will provide housing for one student. And a contribution of $1600 will provide airfare for one student. The opportunity to gain international medical experience and to further HUCM's mission of assisting underserved populations is invaluable. All contributions - no matter how large or small - are welcome to assist the students in attaining their goal.
