What I Will Be Doing
Our volunteers will be offering medical clinics and health education classes and engaging in community service projects for the area. We will be working with local physicians to provide primary health care for all ages. The health education classes will cover general hygiene, disease prevention, infant care, CPR, and first-aid training. The classes will be open to the public and health officials in the area. We are not completely set in details for community service.
No matter where we end up, we are always excited to be helping out. However, we are particularly looking forward to working in Marrakech, Morocco—somewhere we haven’t been before. We are grateful to have the opportunity to help to improve the lives of others and the well-being of communities!
A Little About Ashley Desmarais
My name is Ashley Desmarais and I am a 2nd-year medical student at the University of Arizona. I have always had a passion for nutrition, exercise, traveling and medicine. My involvement in community volunteer work initially exposed me to global health and is a big reason I went to medical school! It is truly a unique experience to be able to work with a new group of people providing medical care.
