This is a club based around humanitarian efforts and medical relief towards a local town in Honduras upon which we bring around 20 Brandeis students with basic medical supplies and drugs with a physician. We fundraise throughout both semesters and utilize all of our on campus and off campus connections to get enough money to subsidize the trip for students to go to Honduras on this amazing experience. Students learn basic medical techniques, many of the intricacies of Honduran and Latin American culture, and get an experience of a lifetime.
At Brandeis, we have a medical brigade, public health brigade, and microfinance brigade.
