Dear Friends and Family,

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 St. Croix in March 2014. I will be parnering with local health care providers while being mentored by DSN clinical and global health faculty.

This exciting internship parnter with the non-profit organization called Luteran Social Services fo the Virgin Islands. Please check out their website: Http://lssvi.org

When some people hear about the virgin islands they think about a vacation destination, but very few poeple realize that the local populations of St. Croix suffer from one of the highest percentages of cognitive disorders and mental handicaps in the Western Hemisphere. The Luthern Social Services organization has been serving the abused, abandoned and neglected children, pregnant women and families iwth disabilities for over 107 years.

Over 40 DSN students applied for this internship and I am so honored to be one of the six students selected to use my skills to serve on this internship. All funds for flights, housing and medical outreach supplies are due to Denver School of Nursing on February 1. I have set aside funds to cover my flights for this trip but I still need $1,500.00 to cover housing, and needed funds for medical supplies, equipment, and program support for the Lutheran Social Services. Every dollar helps.

I will keep you posted as funds are raised please consider donating to allow me this opportunity to both learn and to serve!
