What is a MEDLIFE Chapter?
MEDLIFE Chapters are student groups that represent and share the MEDLIFE Movement to create a world free from the constraints of poverty at their schools and in their local communities. Our in-country staff works with impoverished communities in Peru, Ecuador, Nicaragua, and Tanzania every day — but we couldn’t do it without the support of our Chapters. They make an impact by organizing groups to volunteer in Service Learning Trips, raising awareness about global health inequality, hosting fundraisers, engaging in local community service, and hosting regional conferences, among other initiatives.
It’s thanks to their dedication and support that we are able to provide high-quality healthcare, education, and development projects to communities in need!

Our Chapters Impact
Raising thousands of dollars for the MEDLIFE Project Fund, our initiative that creates sustainable, large-scale solutions for issues facing communities living in poverty. This support allows MEDLIFE to do more – reach new communities, provide preventative health care to people without access, and create a safer home for families living in poverty.
Sending students on Service Learning Trips to support impoverished communities in Africa and Latin America.
Initiating and engaging in community service at home. Service goes beyond one week. Our Chapters continue spreading the Movement by participating in local initiatives in their own communities.
Hosting regional MEDLIFE conferences. A vital component of our Movement is education. To continue growing and learning, MEDLIFErs seek opportunities to learn from professionals in the medical, education, and development fields.
