Pharmacy Team Works in Honduras
Posted by Brooke Kehl on January 26, 2017

A few months ago, a team from Lipscomb left for a medical mission in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. The team consisted of faculty, staff, pharmacists -local and from the US, pharmacy school students. 

The HHI Medical program outfits groups, such as this team from Lipscomb, with medical supplies and simple medications needed for their medical mission trips. Team member Hannah Boren said,  “I will never forget how grateful the villagers were to receive medication that we often take for granted such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen.”

During the trip 624 patients were seen and almost 3000 prescriptions were dispatched in fours days of mobile clinics. The dispatch locations  included local churches buildings, elementary schools and community clinics.

While the team primarily went on the trip for medical purposes, they were also able to participate in food distribution to the community.

“Everyone found a function where they could best use their talents to help the Honduran people and glorify God, and I am honored to have been able to serve with them, ” Boren said.

We praise God for the safety of this group and the success of their trip!
