Brock Global Medical Brigade is a volunteering club that works with Global Brigades under the medical sector to help implement a holistic model into remote, rural, and under-resourced communities in Latin-American and African countries. Students will be learning about these communities, the way they live, and how to help them medically and socially; they will also be fundraising and finding resources/supplies for these communities throughout the year. At the end of the year students have the opportunity to go on an optional medical brigade to one of these communities where students will gain hands-on experience in the field and shadow licensed healthcare professionals as they consult community members on their health needs and prescribe medication. Student volunteers will have the opportunity to intake patients, perform triage, distribute medication under licensed pharmacists, and facilitate preventative medicine workshops. This is a great opportunity to gain experience in working in the medical field, helping others around the world, and maybe even learn a new language!
