Project World Health USF
For more than 19 years we have worked with hundreds of medical students and physicians and we have helped thousands of needy children and adults in such areas as Jarabacoa (Dominican Republic), Haiti, and Nicaragua.
Each year we travel to the Dominican Republic for a medical mission trip bringing suitcases packed with medications and basic hygienic supplies including anti-parasitic medications, vitamins, toothbrushes, toothpaste, pain and fever madications and other basic remedies. These may be easily available to us in the U.S but are not always available in those remote communities.
- We have purchased $8,000 worth of medidcal supplies for Jarabacoa, Dominican Republic Mission trip.
- Held medical clinics in Jarabacoa treating over 1,000 patients in one week with over 70 medical volunteers.
- We have assisted in fundraising for the 2018 Project World Health Jarabacoa trip ($10,000).
We like to teach and promote health, provide basic medical supplies and humanitarian needs, work with local health care providers, perform basic surgical procedures and provide flouride varnish treatments, vitamins and parasites treatment.
In March of 2019, PWH will be making our journey to the Jarabacoa, Dominican Republic, which we have served for the past 19 years. Our interprofessional team of medical students, pharmacy students, nurses, pharmacists, physicians, and dentists expect to serve about 1,500 individuals in 10 different communities over the course of the week. Help us make this a reality!
