As always, there will be a 3 point max. Items can be donated at the workshop, Medical Professions Conference or at the cubicle in Tate!
There are many outside medical organizations in the Athens area that allow student volunteers. Due to the nature of these programs, groups are not allowed to volunteer and all volunteers must register independently.

Interested in getting hands-on medical experience in a different country? Go on a Service-Learning Trip! MEDLIFE@UGA offers its members a chance to travel abroad and volunteer in the impoverished areas of Peru, Nicaragua, Ecuador, and Tanzania. Volunteers will work closely with local medical professionals to treat those who lack access to proper healthcare. Volunteers will also participate in developmental projects such as building staircases, schools, and public restrooms. Trips are offered every winter, spring, and summer.
