Global Medical Brigades is the world’s largest student-led global health and sustainable development organization. Since 2004, Global Medical Brigades has mobilized tens of thousands of students and professionals through skill-based programs that work in partnership with community members to improve quality of life in under-resourced regions while respecting local culture.
Our chapter at the University of Maryland, Baltimore is one of hundreds of chapters around the globe. Each chapter brings students on one-week trips to areas in Honduras, Panama, Nicaragua, or Ghana that have little access to health care. While there, students work together to set up makeshift clinics and can see anywhere from 500 to 1,000 patients per brigade.
This year, the UMB chapter will be going to Honduras from Jan 6-12.
