Our original plan was to communicate any changes for the Service Learning Exchange summer trip to Guatemala at the end of this month.

Personally, the thought of not going to Guatemala for the first summer in 10 years breaks my heart. The hugs, the tears on dedication day, the […]

“Shelter and access to medical care are basic necessities that are often in short supply in Guatemala. When Pediatric Hospitalist Lavanya Shankar, MD, learned of an opportunity to volunteer at medical clinic and build houses around Guatemala City with her teenage daughter, Sanjana, she jumped at the chance.   “I’ve always wanted to get involved in global health to help others in need,” says Dr. Shankar. “I’m getting a graduate degree in Healthcare Quality and Patient Safety, and it goes hand-in-hand with this effort.” I also want to teach the next generation what the world is about and to help them recognize they have so much to offer.”   Last August, Dr. Shankar, […]
