Program Description:

Overview

Haiti-Medical Mission team
Submerging one’s self into another culture and providing medical and pharmacy care in an environment with few resources is a life changing opportunity for student learners. 

Two fourth-year students will spend one week in Haiti, actively participating in the medical mission. They will then spend four weeks working on health education programming at two local shelters in St. Louis. The public health focus of the learning experience includes reduction in infectious disease transmission, substance use and harm reduction, and preventative primary healthcare.
