Medical & Dental Mission Trips — Summer & Winter 2018

MEDICAL & DENTAL MISSION TRIP – KENYA & PERU

Azma International invites applications to participate in our Medical and Dental Mission Trip in Kenya and Peru this summer and winter 2018.

The team will volunteer in a medical, dental and health promotion mission trip. We will set up clinics in rural areas that see little to no medical attention. Poor living conditions, overcrowding, lack of sufficient running water, and undeveloped sewage systems have led to widespread diseases in the rural areas, urban slums and other poor parts of the country.  People living in these poor communities lack access to proper health care and good nutrition. The team will provide free medical services and health education to the less fortunate who would otherwise go without medical care. Our goal is to travel to the places where people need the most urgent care, and bring free medical and dental services to them.

Parallel Planning Workshop– Calling all pre-professional students!

February 26, 2018

6:00pm -7:30 pm

Dogwood, IMU

Parallel planning is a strategy to maximize your time and effort, while in college and thereafter.  It is not “backup” or “plan B” planning.  It is assessing what you love doing and are good at, and achieving the career that matches that.

Parallel planning could involve: 1) completing prerequisites for two different health profession careers while you exploring and confirming which you love better and excel at more or 2) developing a second (or third) set of skills that will supplement the career path you have decided upon.

At the session, HPPLC advisors will present information on various health professions careers and additional responsibilities health care practitioners take on in the course of their career.  Then, on Wednesday, February 28 at the Health Professions Programs Fair, you can speak with admissions representatives about their programs and opportunities to develop the skills for the additional responsibilities you envision for your career.

While certainly not mandatory, we encourage you to look over or even complete all or part of the self-questionnaire linked from the HPPLC site http://hpplc.indiana.edu/ohp/#assess. It can help you more clearly identify and evaluate your aptitudes, your areas of interest, and what has drawn your attention to these areas.

(Please note that this session will not address technical questions about application processes and procedures, admission prerequisites, etc., but will instead focus on topics pertaining to making good health career choices.)
