Jose's Hands - Guatemala Orphanage Medical Mission

The College of Pharmacy is collaborating with Jose's Hands to provide interprofessional medical/patient care to a large number of underserved people in the area of Sumpango Sacatepéquez, Guatemala, ( 5-day trip to provide medical help to a home for the orphaned, abandoned, and malnourished children of Guatemala).

This is the second year the college has participated in this medical initiative. The program is being offered to 4-6 students who will receive financial assistance in the form of a $500 scholarship from Jose's Hands and a $500 scholarship from the college.

Class of 2018 and 2019 students interested in applying for this service opportunity must complete the NSU application and submit it by March 30, 2017.

"This was hands down one of the best experiences of my life, and is a great opportunity for students, especially pharmacy candidates since we are typically not included in other missions"-Brandi Nichols '17
