Second year family medicine resident Jeremy Bramwell, M.D., will experience his first medical mission trip in January. A recipient of the ISMA Medical Mission Scholarship, he plans to travel 35 miles southwest of Port-au-Prince to Grand-Goave, Haiti, providing medical care to 800-1,000 needy Haitians. Grand-Goave is still recovering from the 2010 earthquake when 90 percent of the city was destroyed.

“I am thrilled to receive this scholarship from the ISMA,” he said. “The money will help defray the cost of the trip and help buy needed baby formula, liquid vitamins and medications.”
How you can apply

- Dates and location of proposed trip
- Information about other sponsors and/or mission coordinators
