PA Medicine Team Provides Medical Care to the Underserved of Nicaragua

NGU's Physician Assistant (PA) Medicine program recently returned from their first medical mission trip to Nicaragua.  It was the first of many trips to providing medical care to the underserved residents of Nicaragua.  This medical mission trip is an international Family Medicine III clerkship option offered to NGU's PA students during their clinical year. 

The medical team consisted of three PA faculty members: Dr. Gregory Davenport, professor Kelcye Richards, and professor Jenna Rolfs; one staff member Katie Shamblin; six PA students: Taylor Bowling, Sara Beth Harmon, Jessica Hatcher, Shruhi Modi, Devan Murphy, and Christine Stover; and five community volunteers: Dr. Sandra Love, Dr. Jeremy Welsh, Dr. Bethany Rose, Karen Witters, and Jamie Gustafson.

The medical team traveled to three separate villages and was able to treat approximately 250 patients throughout the week.   They focused on acute illnesses and preventative care/education.  The team was also able to hand out hygiene bags, clothing, and toys throughout the week as well. 

The PA medical team partnered with Chosen Children Ministries, a faith based, non-profit organization that seeks to make Christ known by transforming communities in Nicaragua.  The next NGU PA Medicine Nicaragua International clerkship will be in August.
