Five HealthCare Partners and three Kidney Care teammates traveled with Bridge of Life (BOL) to Monte Cristi, Dominican Republic just a few days into the new year. Primary care services, including labs, vitals, examinations, and consultations, were provided to 433 individuals in underserved rural areas.
This was BOL's second mission in partnership with Timmy Global Health, an Indianapolis-based nonprofit that strengthens the capacity of local health systems through short-term medical service programs and long-term health solutions.
"I think everyone representing Bridge of Life would agree that this has been an experience that they will remember always," said Kathleen Kasprzyk, RN, Kidney Care. "It has reminded me of how privileged we are in the U.S. and to always remain humble."
