Providing Care in the DR

Providing Care in the DR

Creighton medical, nursing, dental, pharmacy and undergraduate students spent four weeks in the Dominican Republic this summer bringing care to the poor, sick and suffering through Creighton’s Institute for Latin American Concern (ILAC). Joined by practicing health professionals, the students worked in small clinics in the mornings and then spent the afternoons meeting with families in the rural campos or giving “charlas” (educational talks) on preventive health care. The ILAC Summer Program will celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2017.
