Bridges to Community brings dozens of medical students, doctors, and pre-med students down to Nicaragua each year to assist with preventive medical care, trainings, and infrastructure support in rural communities in the province of Siuna. These brigades provide much needed medical attention and medicine for thousands of Nicaraguans. One of these groups is Dartmouth College, who has brought students down with Bridges to Community for over 8 years through their Cross Cultural Education and Service Program (CCESP). Last December, 25 volunteers went down to hold medical clinics that attended to over 600 patients. They chronicled their experience with this great video. This is their story.
