MEDLIFE is open to all majors and our primary focus is on issues in global health. We host local service projects here in Athens by partnering with local non-profits in the area and providing student volunteers to power their initiatives.
Aside from local service projects, we host fundraisers for our parent non-profit, MEDLIFE, so that they can continue working towards global initiatives. Fundraisers include our annual 5K run and our frequent scarf sales at Tate Plaza and the Athens Farmers’ Market. We also host a benefit concert featuring local bands downtown.
In addition to these efforts, an important focus of MEDLIFE at UGA is to send students on mobile medical clinics and development trips in Latin America and Africa. These clinics allow students to attain hands-on experiences in shadowing doctors and providing healthcare abroad or obtain priceless experience building new constructions for local communities.
MEDLIFE at UGA strives to be an efficient and effective organization that not only gives sustainable aid to impoverished communities but also provides leadership and service opportunities to the students of UGA.
