Trip to Honduras
Megan’s fourth-year community health rotation took her to Honduras for two weeks with a handful of nursing students, along with dental and medical students. The group would visit small towns, offering medical care to children and adults of all ages, even delivering babies.
Diseases that typically do not progress in the U.S. were more prevalent. Natives lived in shacks on mountain sides, some with pigs under their beds, “but they were happy,” Megan says. “The patients you came in contact with were so grateful to have any sort of assistance you could provide.” The experience made her appreciate the resources in the U.S. much more.
