The opportunity to reach out to international health issues and bring awareness of these issues to the campus.
Public Health Brigades (PHB) empowers under resourced communities in the developing world (we travel to Honduras) to decrease life threatening diseases by improving home infrastructure and providing public health education. Working side-by-side with community members, PHB volunteers improve the overall infrastructure within the home through the construction of four projects: eco-stoves, latrines, water storage units and concrete floors. Between brigades our in-country team provides follow-up to ensure the maintenance of the structures and work to find funding that will compliment the health goals of the community to perpetuate future construction.
