Last day of brigading

March 27, 2012 —

Today we head out to our last day of brigading. I want to take a minute to first thank our health care professionals and doctors. Without them this trip would not have been possible. Below is the amazing group that took time out of their schedules to join our group, teach us more than we ever could have imagined and provide health care to those in need. Not only were we able to interact with the physicians, but also our professors, Dean, pharmacist, translator, and social worker as well. A thousand thank you’s from us to them.

Heading home is going to be very bittersweet. I am sure everyone is excited to see friends and family but the experiences and memories we have made here have been unforgettable. The one thing we will never forget is the gratitude on people’s faces when they got to see us. These have been some of the greatest experiences of most of our lives. Tomorrow we are going to do a little touring before heading to the airport. Talk to you soon!
