FIMRC Chapters help raise awareness about global health and provide amazing opportunities for volunteers to travel and serve. Traveling as a group can be a life-changing experience for our volunteers and for the communities we serve, and we are proud to offer scholarships to help even more volunteers travel abroad to serve with us. Some of our recent chapter groups received a scholarship award donated by a unique FIMRC leader & alum, John Park from Texas Tech.
"It’s a very surreal moment when you get to introduce people to something you are passionate about and then in return see them reciprocate those same feelings." Holden Camp, now a junior at Auburn University, served as a 2017 Summer International Health Fellow in Nicaragua. He recently helped organize another trip; this time to Project Alajuelita in Costa Rica, and with a group of other students from Auburn University.
Mental healthcare is a growing global health concern. Ashley Cooper, president of FIMRC’s Harvard chapter, shares how she is helping to raise awareness both on college campuses and around the world to remove the stigma often associated with mental health challenges.
