More Info

I am a nursing student at Westminster College. This trip will further expose me to the hardships and perks of a medical degree. This class counts for credits toward my nursing education as well. This would be an incredible experience for me to learn as much as I can from a third world country culturally and medically. I've taken microbiology, and I've loved every bit of it, and can't wait to see the differences between the medical situations in a different country. I know it will be an eye opening experience that I hope to walk away with. "The focus of this course will be to explore concepts in global citizenship and responsibility in the 21st century by understanding the educational, health and developmental needs of rural Thai citizens as well as indigenous populations through cultural immersion and active participation in service projects designed to provide benefits to the local peoples. Students will participate in service projects in two distinct rural Thai villages, one near the Burmese border in Mae Sot, and one in the rural Northeast near Khon Kaen, that will help alleviate some of the health, educational and developmental issues present, while staying with local families within the villages. Other activities will include tours of historically significant sites in Thailand, sightseeing in Bangkok as well as spending a day with Burmese refugee children at a refugee school and visiting an HIV/AIDS hospice" (Westminster College). These funds will help me get to go on this trip and experience this incredible country.
