Description

The stated mission of MEDLIFE is "to help families achieve greater freedom from the constraints of poverty, empowering them to live healthier lives. Our patients did not choose to be poor, but they have chosen to strive toward a better life; MEDLIFE stands beside them in this pursuit."

MEDLIFE organizes medical brigades of local physicians and student volunteers to visit communities in need of support. MEDLIFE works directly with community leaders to establish trust and respect to create a sustainable, successful partnership.

Each semester, we organize a group of our members to travel to one of the MEDLIFE volunteer mobile clinic locations (Peru, Ecuador, Tanzania, India), where they work with local doctors, nurses and dentists in setting up and running mobile clinics in rural, impoverished communities. Throughout the semester, we fundraise to help offset trip costs, raise awareness about relevant global/public health issues and engage in local health-related events in the DC area.
