Katie's Medical Research Trip to Peru

Organized by: Katie Speirs

EVENT DATE Jun 20, 2015

THE STORY:

Our UNSOM student group will be traveling to Peru for a full week to conduct clinical research in the towns of Iquitos, Belen, and Nauta. Here we will be studying the presence of malnutrition in both adult and pediatric populations. We will also be surveying for the presence of parasitic infections and providing general health clinics and health education!
The money that I am hoping to raise here will fully cover the cost of my required volunteer fee for the week, as well as a portion of my travel fees.

If you would like your donation to be a tax writeoff, you can also send a check to 

1542 Tremont Street

Roxbury, MA 02120

Check Payable to Community Health Council

The extra step for this would be letting me know you've sent a check at kspeirs@medicine.nevada.edu. 


Thank you!!!
