Global Medical Brigades

Public Profile

About This Organization

Abbreviation(s):
GMB
Purpose:
Global Medical Brigades is a secular, international student-operated volunteer organization whose mission is to provide sustained health care to underserved communities throughout the world. Along with affiliate groups at other distinguished universities, our Texas A&M team will recruit student volunteers and medical professionals, gather medicine, and travel overseas to perform these medical brigades. Our current emphasis is to help the impoverished villages of Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, and Ghana in January and August. We will recruit dedicated students, nurses, residents, pharmacists, dentists and doctors to volunteer on each trip. Along with the medical brigades, students will visit several community projects that aim to also better the quality of life in these impoverished areas.
