I hope this message finds you in a time of excitement and gratitude as the Holidays approach. I am thrilled to share with you news that I have been selected to serve on a Global Health Perspectives internship through the Denver School of Nursing (DSN). I was selected for a service learning internship traveling to Haiti in March 2014. I will be partnering with local health care providers while being mentored by DSN clinical and global health faculty. This exciting internship partners with the Non-profit organization called Love Takes Root. Barb Wilkerson is a pediatric nurse practitioner and she started this organization with her husband Dr. Rick Wilkerson. Denver School of Nursing has partnered with Love Takes Root for the past two years and it has been through the generous donations of supporters like you that allowed a new orphanage to be built in Jacmel Haiti to replace the orphanage destroyed by the Earth Quake in 2010. Our internship will focus on transitioning the 50 Haitian orphans into the newly constructed orphanage and providing clinical care for the orphans and surrounding community. While on the internship we will scrub into surgery and assist Dr. Wilkerson in surgical needs of the community as well. Most importantly, our goal is to empower Haitian health care providers while teaching preventative healthcare practices in order to enable these families to thrive independently long after our departure!

 I am so grateful for this chance to contribute my nursing skills on a global level and would be deeply honored an eternally grateful if you would partner with me to raise funds to help me get there! All funds for flights, housing, and medical outreach supplies are due to Denver School of Nursing on February 1st. My goal is to raise $2000 in the next 50 days. This money will cover the flights to Haiti and more importantly it will provide needed funds to donate medical supplies, equipment, and support for Love Takes Root. Every dollar helps! 

I would love to keep you posted as I prepare for, attend, and return from this life changing experience. Please let me know if I can include you in emails about this internship or any questions you might have!

Thank you for your support with this amazing adventure.
