A group of Student Doctors and Lecturers from Busk College of Osteopathic Medicine, in Harrogate Tennessee, are at the Good Samaritan Clinic of Body and Soul Ministries in Roaring Creek, providing free medical services and medication to residents of Roaring Creek and the neighbouring communities. Warren Wisnoff head doctor and lecturer gave us more information.
“We have a colleague in Tennessee, who has spent a lot of time bringing medical outreach to this clinic, and he asked our International Medicine Club if we would like to come here and provide medical services for the community, and we relished the opportunity. We have two of our professors, me and another, and we have 14 medical students, second and third year. We’ve been to Haiti multiple times, and we’re happy to have the opportunity to come and meet the people in Belize.”
Sarah O’nan is a third year student at the Busk College of Osteopathic Medicine and is studying to be a pediatrician. She tells us what her experience has been like working with the children of Belize.
“We provide whatever [our] resources will allow us. I think we’ve done everything from seeing kids, to pregnant women, to adults, to the elderly, so just anything that we can. The kids have been very gracious and very adorable. The kids are so cute here. It’s been very rewarding. Everyone’s been very open to letting us listen to their heart and learn from them. So we’re very excited.”
The Christian medical team will be in Roaring Creek until the end of this week.
