|Description:||Global Medical Brigades (GMB) focuses on delivering basic health care to the impoverished people of Honduras, Panama, and Ghana in the form of mobile clinics. Our club at UCI spends the year fundraising for medications and looking for doctors generous enough to donate their expertise to our brigade. In March and/or June of each year our club travels to either Honduras, Panama, or Ghana with our newly purchased medications and a volunteer doctor or health provider. Once we arrive, we provide health care to approximately 800 people who would have gone without it otherwise. Student members are afforded the opportunity to shadow doctors, familiarize themselves with an array of commonly prescribed medications, and above all, helping those in need.|
