Introducing MEDLIFE’s first MED Center!


At MEDLIFE, we focus on providing comprehensive services and healthcare to the communities we partner with. In this, chapter fundraising supports our capacity to provide essential services to community members in need. This year’s goal is for each chapter to fundraise $2000 per academic year. These funds will go towards our first MED Center which will be located in Union Santa Fe, Pamplona, Lima, Peru.

The drive and motivation behind us building MED Centers is so that we can directly impact more community member’s lives with our work, and facilitate an even stronger relationship between MEDLIFE and community leaders. The MED Center will be focused on a trade school for children and adults, offer basic medical/dental services, and serve as a community center focused on the particular development issues that community faces.

For example, in Union Santa Fe, obstacles to obtaining land title is a major issue preventing people from advancing. To enhance community development, we would utilize the MED Center to provide the support of law students and pro-bono lawyers to the community. This is just one example of the essential comprehensive services the MED Center will offer.

In addition to the services provided to the community, this center will also encompass hostel style living areas and conference rooms so that we can remain in the community for more time during and outside of clinics. This way, we will continue building relationships between volunteers, staff, and community members during all aspects and stages of our partnerships.

This trip made everything that I was learning in my public health courses come to life and immersed me in a new culture while also learning about medicine.

Being involved with MEDLIFE is not like joining another club - its bigger than that. It is about joining a movement that seeks to help change people’s quality of life for forever.

Not only was I able to participate in a week long Mobile Clinic, shadowing doctors of all types of specialties including pharmacy, dentistry, gynecology, and more, but I was also able to learn about the culture and visit incredible places.

One thing that I really loved about this trip was that MEDLIFE made sure that the volunteers got an understanding of the complexity of issues that lead to underprivileged people in communities outside of the main city

Whether it was basketball with the local kids, assisting the doctors, talking with families, building washrooms, holding babies, or spending time with the people who were on the SLT with me, this was an amazing opportunity that I would do over and over again.

Our family had the privilege of participating in multiple trips with Nick [founder] and his amazing staff. Their expertise made the trips unforgettable while instilling in my boys the fundamentals of good character: selflessness, compassion, and empathy.

As an aspiring physician, MEDLIFE motivated me to further continue my goal of becoming a doctor. In fact, I enjoyed the Tanzania Service Learning Trip so much that I decided to go on another trip to Cusco, Peru.
