Students for Sayaxché FIRST MEETING

From Rachael Metz ’16:

Interested in public and/or global health, medicine, or human rights issues? Come to Students for Sayaxché’s first meeting!

Students for Sayaxché is a new student group on campus that, along with some local physicians at Middlesex Hospital, serves as a partner and advocate for a group of rural hospitals and clinics in Sayaxché, Guatemala. As student volunteers, our primary responsibility is to facilitate this partnership between the hospitals in Middletown and Sayaxché. You can expect to do everything from helping to arrange the shipment of medical supplies to even having the opportunity to travel to Guatemala yourself and work at the Sayaxché clinic.

Students for Sayaxché has been an on/off kind of group for a few years now, and this year we’re looking to make it a serious group with concrete goals. While we do have an overarching philosophy and angle to our work, we are looking to further define the group with new ideas. So if you are at all interested in public and/or global health, medicine, or human rights issues, PLEASE come and share your thoughts and ideas with us!

Date: Wednesday, October 8th
Time: 9-10 PM
Place: 11 Vine St.
