Nursing and Pharmacy Global Health Immersion in Roatan

Support Duquesne University Schools of Nursing and Pharmacy students who will provide care to people in the communities of Roatan, Honduras.

What We Do!

We are a group of Nursing and Pharmacy students who will be participating in a Global Health Immersion in Roatan, Honduras during Spring Break (March 2-9, 2024). Continuing our interdisciplinary work from last year, we will be travelling again to work with the amazing staff at Clinica Esperanza. The clinic provides care to over 140 patients per day, and no one is turned away for inability to pay. Your contribution will help to defray the students’ cost!


Our plans for this trip:

Students will travel on a Spring Breakaway and donate their time, money, and energy to assist with local healthcare needs. The week will include daily work on healthcare initiatives coordinated with local neighborhoods and in the clinic. We will work with promotoras who serve as community liaisons, and complete presentations for members of the community. We will also sharpen our Spanish skills, learn about local culture, and visit unique areas of the city and country.

How can you help?

Please consider donating to help defray the cost of this Spring Breakaway for our students. This is a life-changing experience, but the out-off-pocket expense is high, especially with airfare. Your donation money can help to make a difference!  

We appreciate a donation at any level! Please donate today and help spread the word on social media! Thank you!

See your donation in action during our Spring Break week! We will share updates during our trip on social media – Follow @dunursing and @duquesnepharm
