EVENT DATE: May 03, 2012
This May, in three months, I am going to move to the town of Montellano in the Dominican Republic to serve as a medical volunteer for the organization Health Horizons International (HHI). This organization trains community health workers and provides primary care and public health services to the underserved in Montellano and in the Puerto Plata region of the Dominican Republic.
As a Patient Care Management Volunteer, I will provide support during medical mission trips, facilitate communication between patients and their physicians in the U.S. in the interim, and travel to the communities we serve to help individual patients with their medications, referrals to specialists, and the management of chronic illnesses.
For more information about HHI and my volunteer experience, please visit my blog at briandailyabroad.wordpress.com.
To all of my supporters whose donations will make possible my volunteer trip, I cannot thank you enough for your generosity. Thank you for believing in me. Thank you for helping bring primary care and public health services to the underserved in the Dominican Republic through Health Horizons International. I will work hard to make sure you get your money’s worth, and I will keep you informed on my experiences in the Dominican Republic through my blog.
Thank you for your support!
