Global Medical Brigade Applications Open!

Global Medical Brigade Applications Open! Global Medical Brigades is a student-run organization of dedicated UW students that travel with healthcare professionals to Central America each summer. There, we create temporary clinics that provide free medical aid and health education in rural, underserved communities. The past three summers, the UW brigade has travelled to small Panamanian communities in the eastern-most province of Durian. In the last weeks of summer 2014 we will travel to Central America (Panama / Nicaragua) or to Africa (Ghana), to continue our work supporting communities in need. This is a truly amazing experience and I encourage you to apply; especially if you are interested in public or global health, a career in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, nursing, Spanish, or international studies. The web application for the Summer 2014 Brigade is now up, and will be due November 15th, 2013 by 11:45 pm. Please get your application in as soon as possible!
