Hello everyone! Welcome to our blog...
Over the course of the next couple of weeks, I will be posting updates leading up to the trip. The point of our blog is to stay as connected as possible with our friends and family, as well as the people who have donated their time or money to assist us in our efforts.
A Little About Our Group:
Med4Nicaragua was founded by two women, Dr. Christine Brody, an ObGyn, and Valishia Savage. After the pair traveled to Casa Bernabe orphanage in Nicaragua in early 2010, they decided they wanted to help the entire community. They created a four-person team to pioneer the group's first medical mission trip later that year. The team was able to complete seven surgeries at the El Samaritano Clinic.
In April of this year, we will be returning with a larger and more diverse team to attend to the various needs of the orphanage and the local community. There are 22 physicians, nurses and many other medical and non-medical on our team, and we plan to complete 20-30 surgeries in our week-long trip!
This blog will be regularly maintained both leading up to the trip and once we're there. I look forward to introducing you to our team and keeping you up-to-date on our trip.

Thanks for all of your support!!
