RPI GMB works to provide relief to an underserved community in Panama, Honduras, Nicaragua, or Ghana. Depending on the interest, we can choose to focus on medical, dental, public health, environmental, or water brigades. Previously we have traveled on medical and dental brigades during which volunteers have the opportunity to take patient vitals, shadow doctors and dentists, and work in the pharmacy of the mobile clinic we set up. Each brigade also includes a cultural day during which members gain a unique immersion into the community with which we work. All members of our club are invited to travel abroad and participate in meaningful global service experiences as well as learn more about sustainable models of infrastructure and healthcare.
