Spring Break Trip

During spring break, AED offers the opportunity to attend a volunteer trip to Nicaragua, where attendees serve on a team bringing medical care to impoverished and underserved communities. During the week, students work closely with doctors, translators, and their teammates to interview patients, perform physical exams, diagnose illnesses and provide medication. During the evenings and on recreation day, there are opportunities to relax and enjoy the Nicaraguan culture and food. If you are interested in serving the people of Nicaragua and learning a great deal about medical care in the process, we strongly encourage you to take part in this transforming experience! More information and interest meetings will be announced throughout the year.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Ryan Mecaskey (rjmecaskey@crimson.ua.edu) or Leah Thomas (lhthomas@crimson.ua.edu).
