Our sister Natalie Fiallo, who is studying pre-med, was given the opportunity to go on a medical mission trip to Jarabacoa, Dominican Republic this summer through the MedX Medical program.
“During my trip I was able to team up with hospitals in different cities and specialties to gain a better understanding of their medical system. I was able to provide basic medical care to patients throughout the city, scrub into surgeries, make rounds with the doctors around the hospital, and learn from the professors in the area. I was also able to visit a catholic orphanage called “Hogar de Las Niñas” where I was able to put smiles on little girls faces by playing games, taking selfies, and dancing around. Overall, this trip has been one of the best experience of my life and can’t wait till my next medical mission.
This trip was nothing short of humbling, amazing memories, friendships, and a learning experience I could only dream of. This trip helped me realize I have chosen the right career path and helped motivate me to achieve my medical dreams.”
