I have been blessed to live a life where I have always had access to food, clothing, water, shelter, and healthcare. Unfortunately, many people are not that lucky. As I've grown as a person and a practitioner I have become passionate about giving back. It is extremely important especially when it comes to working with populations who have very little access to not only healthcare but health education.
I am no stranger to mission work, but this coming January I will be going on my first ever medical mission as a rising physician assistant. This will be an opportunity to help a community and make a real difference in their lives. We will be spending a week in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala working at several different sites. One that I will personally be very involved with is a shelter for women who are victims of domestic and sexual violence. Most people who know me well know that this population in particular is one that has a very special place in my heart and is often one of the populations that needs the most help and support. Please help me and my 16 classmates make a real difference in these people's lives. Donating as little as 5 or 10 dollars can make a huge difference! If you are interested in donating supplies or anything else, please contact me at Ajackiew@my.bridgeport.edu!
