$1 x 200 people = A HUGE Help! Help me raising money to purchase prenatal vitamins, over-the-counter medications, and antibiotics for the annual medical service trip to the Dominican Republic I will be attending at the end of July. My group (MedPACT) was started at UCF in 2009 by medical students with the goal of providing sustainable medical care to rural international communities with unmet medical needs. We will be traveling to San Francisco de Macoris, Dominican Republic with a group of medical and nursing students to run a week-long clinic for that community. All of the students attending the trip provided their own funds for travel and accommodations, but we are desperately trying to raise money to supply the communities with medications they would otherwise not be able to access. Any donation would be greatly appreciated. Donations of vitamins and hygiene products are also needed and would be welcomed as support. Availability of the most basic items is limited where we will be providing medical care and any contributions you can make would be of great assistance. Consistent with our goals to create a sustainable trip, we are initiating a series of unique steps: 1. An electronic medical record (EMR) will be implemented to record patient data, so that patients’ care can be followed during subsequent trips. 2. We will be establishing longitudinal care, returning to the same cities every year to follow patients. By building a consortium to provide lasting care in the area, we hope to link resources, share patient data, and establish an effective pool of care providers. 3. The trip will be interdisciplinary, with medical and nursing students working together for a common cause. 4. We are establishing a lasting relationship with the medical school in San Francisco de Macoris, DR at Universidad Catolica Nordestana to facilitate our outreach. 5. We will take with us culturally tailored educational materials on topics like wound care, accident prevention, nutrition education, and maternal health issues, in order to improve the health literacy of our patient population. Please contact me for additional information. Thank you for your support!
