As part of the VCU Global Health and Health Disparities Program (GH2DP), we strive to improve the health of rural, impoverished Honduran communities through lasting, collaborative clinical and public health projects. Over the years, in collaboration with the local Ministry of Health in Olanchito, Yoro, we have the served same rural community in northern Honduras with direct clinical care, water sanitation programs, mass deworming and other public health works. The Global Health and Health Disparities Program also serves to formally introduce medical students and residents to international relief work and public health. Our related clinical research has resulted in multiple abstracts, presentations and medical publications.
