Dr. Tina Liebrecht will describe the work of Northern Nursing Without Borders, a group of nursing, pharmacy, and other allied health students, faculty, and alumni who plan and implement a medical mission trip in the Dominican Republic every May. This group spends months collecting donations including medical and hygiene supplies, education material, and general donations. Each year, care and donated supplies as well as health education are provided to over 500 Dominican and Haitian people.
Dr. Chris North will discuss donating in times of disaster. First there was Irma, then Harvey and Maria. Then a shooter in Las Vegas. All in quick succession. Each a disaster in its own right. Each requesting donations and aid from fellow Americans. We are called to help – to give – to make a difference. Where is your money going? Is it making the difference you hope? Come find out.
