Nursing students to treat patients at Honduras clinic



“In addition, significant pharmaceutical donations have been made by J&M Drugs in Warner Robins and Hines Pharmacy in Barnesville Georgia,” said Coke. The donations are extremely helpful because of the limited medical resources in this remote area. Our medical mission team is taking all needed pharmaceutical and medical equipment with them from the United States.”

The number of expected patients has doubled to more than 1,200 since the initial planning of the trip. 

“The estimated number of people needing health care in Honduras is difficult to nail down as people come from outlying areas to receive care when they know teams are coming in,” said Coke. “They often line up days in advance of the team.”

The group will leave on Oct. 26 and return on Nov. 9. 

While they are working in Honduras, a student will blog about their daily experiences.
