Review for Vida Volunteer, Arlington, VA, USA
I have wanted to be a doctor for a long time and my experience with VIDA has only made me want this even more. I learned so much from the hands on experience I got as we took the medical histories of patients and diagnosed them with the help of doctors. It was truly an amazing experience that allowed us to see how Guatemalans live in both a cultural sense and an economic sense. We were able to see how poverty manifests in health issues and we spent forty hours providing medical aid that would not have been available otherwise. I was able to learn about diseases and diagnoses due to the direct handling of patients with those conditions and I will never forget this incredible experience.
