Mission: We are a non-profit, student-led and student-funded group, and our goal is to provide quality medical and dental care to under-served communities in rural Honduras. We do this by traveling on a mission trip every year during our Spring Break. This year our brigade is tentatively set to take place from March 16th - 23rd.
