Spelman College Medical/Dental/Public Health Brigade March 2016 Nicaragua
Mar 06, 2016 - Mar 14, 2016

Global Brigades offers 7-10 day Medical Brigades throughout the year in Honduras, Panama, Nicaragua and Ghana. During a Medical Brigade, 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. Global Brigades offers 7-10 day Public Health Brigades throughout the year in Honduras, Panama, Nicaragua and Ghana. On Public Health Brigades, 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.
