15 hours left to reach our goal!

April 30, 2018

A big thank you to our 5 donors for helping us get closer to our goal! We still have a ways to go but I believe we can get there! Our students have been working hard preparing for their final; a simulated 'clinic' experience. We have them run through 4 stations; triage, general medicine, dental, pharmacy in Spanish. We also have the last MEDLIFE Movement station where we ask them questions about voluntourism, dufflebag medicine and cultural sensitivity. All of our students did great and we can't wait to hear from them once they return from their service learning trips!

First week of April done!

The ice has been broken! We want to give a big thank you to our first donor for your generous donation! If you have not done so, I encourage you to look at our page and donate to support our students!

 

This week our students participated in an activity that gave them a lesson on privilege and cultural sensitivity. Each student was told to pick a card containing a star, square, circle, and triangle symbol at the beginning of class but were not told what they meant. At the end of class, our educators announced that each symbol stood for a different case scenario and there was only one of the cards that ended with the individual living long life, all the other cards stood for different cases that arise in areas of high pollution, lack of access to healthcare, and food desserts. We then told the students that who ever ended up living would not have to take the final exam. Long story short, no one had the card representing the healthy individual (what are the odds!) and needless to say that the students were not to happy about this unfair system we had created. 

 

We used this as an example of privilege. We were born by mere chance and these environments have greatly impacted our way of living. We wanted our students to acknowledge any privilege they may hold by experiencing what it is like to not have control of certain outcomes in their lives.
