      Past Trips:

  • »

    Haiti program concentrating on emergency medical care, ultrasound, and therapeutic arts

  • »

    Jamaica program concentrating on emergency medical care, HIV/AIDS intervention, health education and empowerment in public schools.

Haiti: The first multidisciplinary project was in Des Chapelles, Haiti, in 2005. This trip inspired a culturally competent and multidisciplinary approach to serving people in developing nations by connecting with community-based hospitals, and the surrounding community. Our team provided emergent care in the hospital, taught medical education, gave clothing donations to community members in need, and taught a community art program, which allowed youth to express themselves freely and broaden their artistic vision through mixed media projects.

Jamaica: In March 2006 UfGH launched a project in Montego Bay, Jamaica that focused on HIV/Aids and health care disparities. Our next project will be in Agona Swedru, Ghana focusing on Malaria prevention and intervention.
