What makes MEDLIFE Service Learning Trips unique?


MEDLIFE offers patient follow-up programs for those who require additional services. They have full-time employees who help and return care to those patients who need it. The local professionals (doctors, nurses, and dentists) have essential knowledge of the language, culture, and existing healthcare system of their country. This allows the patients to have a higher degree of care because they are familiar with the different aspects of their country that might influence the patients. MEDLIFE also has a community leader that works with local community members to ensure that they know why and when we will be present in their communities. Developing these relationships with the different communities helps create trust and collaboration from community members.




Are there any scholarships for the Service Learning Trips?


MEDLIFE offers a scholarship for active members with financial need to receive a $400 voucher. For more information, attend one of our Service Learning Trip workshops.
We also offer a $100 scholarship to the most active member that is attending the trip.
