Less than a week to go!

Bags are almost packed, supplies are all acounted for, and extra Immodium has been purchased! Next Monday, June 30th, 17 (2 public health student leaders, 7 rising second year medical students, 8 rising fourth year students) of the 21 HHA team members will fly into Tegucigalpa, Honduras in the early afternoon. Our two resident doctors and two attendings will  meet us in-country at the end of the week. Some of our team members have gotten an early jump on travel and are currently brushing up on their Spanish skills in Guatemala.

After a night in the capital city, we will take a bus to El Corpus, near the city of Choluteca. There, we will begin setting up our clinic. The majority of the week will be spent in the surrounding communities giving public health presentations, or "charlas", to the women who will attend our clinic the following week. Our work takes place in the southeastern part of Honduras, near the border of Nicaragua.

We will have a team member documenting our daily activities and adventures, and will update the blog whenever we have internet access.

Stay tuned for pictures and stories, and wish us luck!
