A.T. Still University students and community members are preparing to head to Haiti. Those that are traveling will be providing medical care to residents in rural Haiti. Members of 'Community Health Initiative: Haiti' travel to serve residents every three months. They provide continuing care like those that are sick in the United States would receive. The program also allows medical students to see first hand what it is like to care for the sick in third-world countries.
"You know as medical students, it's great to get involved in things like this early in your career. You might find a passion that you wouldn't of otherwise found had it been approached later," said Jonathan DeBoer, of Community Health Initiative: Haiti.
The Community Health Initiative is always looking for volunteers to travel to Haiti. If you are interested in volunteering, feel free to visit http://chihaiti.org/contact-us/ for more information.
