“It was so nice to have the confidence here to bounce ideas around with other students from the various disciplines and come to conclusions together. It will definitely increase my confidence to speak up in the future. This trip really helped me see that I am starting to get the big picture, I can put things together and have an idea what needs to be done to help the patient…I am so grateful I was able to have this experience. I learned so much from everyone I was able to work with, both Nicaraguan and American. I really learned how to utilize other team members and how we can work together to provide the patient with the best care possible.”
