More about the trip:
The group will travel on January 6th to Santa María del Mexicano, a Catholic orphanage and school in the rural arid highlands of central
Mexico. For the next five days, the students will assist the medical team in checking in and interviewing the patients (students, faculty and
staff at the facility), performing eye exams, conducting physicals, treating minor medical issues and administering medications. The group will spend part of the 6th day in the larger city of Querétaro before flying back to Helena on January 12th.
