Passionate about: ...Gourmet cooking and photography. I always strive to improve the world around me through my knowledge and talents. I believe that kindness is magic. Kindness is always in short supply, and many things can be improved with a few kind words and freshly baked cookies! I love photography because a special moment that may occur in an instant can be remembered forever.

Foothill College Medical/Dental/Public Health Brigade August 2015 Honduras
Aug 12, 2015 - Aug 20, 2015

Global Brigades offers 9-day Medical/Public Health Hybrid Brigades throughout the year in Honduras and Nicaragua. During the Medical component, volunteers have the opportunity to take vitals and patient history in triage, shadow licensed doctors in medical consultations, and assist in a pharmacy under the direction of licensed pharmacists. Each of our partner communities receives a brigade approximately twice a year. Between brigades, our in-country team maintains relationships with the communities to provide follow-up and to conduct Community Health Worker (CHW) trainings to empower local leaders to sustain a consistent level of healthcare. Electronic patient records are collected for future visitations and to monitor overall community health trends. During the Public Health component, volunteers develop sustainable health solutions and establish a standard of health quality by emphasizing prevention and education. The Public Health Program achieves this goal by implementing in-home infrastructure projects, providing health education, and engaging community members. Each Public Health Brigade will work with individual families, local schools, and community leaders with a focus on holistic and preventative health measures on both an individual and community-wide scale.
