Subject: Global Dental Brigades 2019 Trip

Description:
Looking for an unforgettable experience this coming winter break? Do you want
to shadow and assist dentists in Honduras while helping educate locals about
the importance of dental hygiene?

Global Dental Brigades is looking for motivated students to join the upcoming
brigade in January of 2019!

University of Maryland is a chapter of Global Dental Brigades, an
international movement of students and medical professionals working
alongside local communities and staff to implement sustainable health
systems. We work in remote, rural, and under-resourced communities in
Honduras, Panama, Nicaragua and Ghana who would otherwise have limited to no
access to health care. Each community receives a brigade every 3 to 4 months
where hundreds of patients are provided access to dental & medical care and
volunteers deliver public health workshops. During these visits, electronic
patient records are collected for future visitations and to monitor overall
community health trends. In conjunction with our Medical & Dental Programs,
Global Brigades also supports communities with economic development,
sanitation and clean water projects, and uniquely implements these programs
in a holistic model to meet a community’s health and economic goals. Our
model systematically builds community ownership and collaboratively executes
programs with the end goal of sustainably evolving to a relationship of
impact monitoring. To learn more, please visit www.globalbrigades.org.
