MEDICAL MISSION TO GUATEMALA
Several students from the Class of 2016 recently returned from a Medical Mission to Panajachel, Guatemala. Students worked in conjunction with the Naturopathic Medicine for Global Health organization. While in Guatemala students volunteered in community clinics, hospitals and rural homes to provide low cost or free care. Students provided patient education on diseases and disease prevention, helped with physical examinations, and aided in creating and implementing treatment plans. Many students were even able to participate in child delivery; the experience was invaluable!

THOMAS MERTON CENTER
Students from the Class of 2016 also volunteered at the Thomas Merton Center during Thanksgiving to provide turkeys and a family meal to the community. It was great to make people smile during the holidays!
