Medical School Students and Faculty Serve in Honduras

During June 2012, 33 Marshall students and faculty visited Honduras. The Ambrose Foundation has supported the School of Medicine in sending students for week-long medical missions to Honduras for the past six years.  They provide student scholarships to sponsor groups of up to 40 students and faculty to provide on-site care in rural Honduran villages.  This exposure to the needs of underserved Central American peoples broadens the medical experience of future doctors, and can inspire them for future service overseas in other medical trips.  The Marshall Medical Brigade served over 1200 patients, helped construct a new home for a family of 12, and visited an orphanage
