Global Medical Brigades, a student club at HCC Brandon, is hosting a 5k run/walk fundraiser in efforts to continue raising money for their medical brigade to Panama this August. 20 student volunteers will be working in a medical clinic in rural Panama for one week. In rural Panama, there are 15 doctors per 10,000 people. For each volunteer going, 24 people will receive access to healthcare. Money raised will go towards purchasing medicine and medical supplies they are required to bring to Panama. Please help these students make a positive impact internationally as they learn how to be better pre-health professionals.
