University of Michigan Students Travel to Guatemala for Medical Mission with Humanity First USA


14 undergraduate students join a team of physicians to provide basic primary care in Masagua, Guatemala at Humanity First medical camp.

Detroit, MI, February 26, 2012 --(PR.com)-- A team of Humanity First USA volunteers will be traveling to Guatemala on February 24, 2012 for a week-long medical mission to provide basic primary care to those in need. The volunteer team includes four doctors, and 14 undergraduate students from University of Michigan.

With the support of the Humanity First Guatemala team, the volunteers will spend a week in Masagua, Guatemala, where they will open and run a primary care clinic to provide free health care to local citizens. They will be handing out hygiene packs, vitamins, and over-the-counter medicines to patients, as well as conducting medical and dental exams and holding health care workshops.

The medical team will include Dr. Clayton Bell and Dr. Amin Bokhari, who joined Humanity First’s immediate disaster response teams for the Haiti Earthquake in early 2010. Dr. Bell is currently the Humanity First USA Country Director for Haiti and has also led student medical brigades in Honduras and Panama in the past year. The student volunteers have all expressed their enthusiasm and excitement at teaming with Humanity First in their efforts to provide basic medical services to underserved individuals and learn from the knowledgeable health care professionals they will be working alongside.

Humanity First USA was established in 2004 and primarily focuses on international humanitarian and disaster relief projects across the world. For more information about Humanity First USA, please visit http://usa.humanityfirst.org.
