Avalon Biomed is a proud sponsor of LECOM’s Medical Relief Trip this July 11-19 in Chacraseca, Nicaragua.  A team of interdisciplinary healthcare professionals, medical students, pharmacy students, physicians, pharmacists, and general volunteers will travel there this summer to provide much needed medical care.  Currently, there is one physician in this rural farming district comprised of 11 counties and 8,000 residents.

LECOM students, together with DOCARE International and Just Hope, will pack medical supplies and medications daily to set up mobile clinics at local schools, community leaders’   households, and also be available to make house calls for those in need of medical condition who are unable to leave their residence.
