Day 1 of Global Brigades Week! We will be sharing the experiences of those who have gone on brigades in the past 🌍
________________________________________________________During my involvement with GB, I went on 3 different brigades. After my first trip to Nicaragua, I was hooked. There’s no way to explain how it feels to empower a community in such a way and get the same feeling in return, but every time I see the smiles on the patients’ faces, I’m brought back to that feeling. Even a complete language barrier doesn’t come between the bond you can make with your patients. No matter if you want to be a doctor, a dentist, a business person, or anything else, a brigade is absolutely the most inspiring, empowering experience you could ask for. ❤️

Hello!

We wanted to announce that spots recently opened up on our December brigade to Ghana that we NEED to fill in order to go!

What: Medical brigade to Ghana to work with physicians and pharmacists to provide medical care to those in areas with limited access

When: Depart December 15th and return December 24th

If you are interested in either receiving more information or want to put your name in, please email [email protected]!
You would be responsible for finding your own flight to Ghana with an itinerary that satisfies the rules of our program associate. We may have one spot open to fly with the group, but you would need your money for that flight in by this Friday.
We may be able to provide temporary or long-term financial assistance (on a case by case basis).

This is a wonderful opportunity, no matter what field you are interested in!

Thank you!

Now that we've been back for a few days, UIC GB wanted to thank everyone for their support! We had an amazing trip - we served hundreds of people at our clinic in 3 days, worked on 3 houses during public health, met amazing people and made lasting friendships.
But the job isn't done yet! Throughout this semester, GB will be planning our next brigade (stay tuned for updates!), keeping up with patients for GB's referral program, and fundraising for next time. Thank you again to everyone involved and we can't wait for our next Global Brigades experience!
