Visiting McGill was a great experience; they have a truly amazing chapter with exceptionally dedicated students. Their strength is even more evident up close and personal. I had extremely constructive conversations with the Executive Board and brainstormed a bunch of new ideas for some of our new student initiatives. A big thanks to all the members of the McGill Executive Board and Expansion Team for taking the time to meet. I hope to be able to visit again soon!

This week was full of a lot of flying, a lot of sightseeing, a lot of planning, and a lot of driving through cornfields; beautiful weather the whole time, luckily. I visited Purdue, U Missouri, Notre Dame and Washington U in St. Louis. Norte Dame’s campus was impressively beautiful. Students at all of the schools showed a lot of interest and are excited about getting started with MEDLIFE and/or fundraising within their existing chapters.

This trip motivated me more to pursue a career in the healthcare field so that I can use my resources to help those who need it the most, similar to MEDLIFE’s mission.

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.

I loved learning about the patients MEDLIFE has followed and how they offer real help to people with chronic/urgent conditions. It is amazing how the organization formed real connections with the communities.

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.
