THE STORY:

What is ILAC? 

The Institute for Latin American Concern (ILAC) program at Creighton University has been serving the people of the Dominican Republic for over 40 years by staffing makeshift clinics in rural regions. This partnership, which promotes the well-being and spiritual growth of all its participants, exists between volunteers in the Dominican Republic and the United States. 

As a medical student, I will be working alongside 90+ professionals and students from the schools of nursing, physical therapy, pharmacy, and dentistry. We will be living in one of the campos, or villages, with a Dominican family, experiencing their rich culture, and reflecting together on God's hand in every moment of our lives and our work together. 

How does your donation help?

Your gift to the ILAC program will help defray our living expenses and assist our volunteer work, including necessary medication and other medical supplies. 

Your gift will help me to reach my fundraising goal, allowing me to participate in this volunteer effort. I believe this program is essential in my spiritual growth and in gaining a better understanding of medicine in a global context. I feel this experience will make me a better physician. 

What happens when we leave the D.R.?

ILAC is an incredible program, ongoing since 1972. It makes a true commitment to the Dominican people, seeking self-sustained health care for these rural communities. 

"All these programs are made possible because of the work of the Cooperadores de Salud, men and women selected by their own rural communities to receive ongoing health care training and education at the ILAC Center." These health aide workers who have been selected by their own rural community now serve over 166 rural communities in the regions of Central Cibao and the Haitian border.
