07 Feb Brigades: VCOM Medical Team
We had the honor of hosting the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM) the very first week of the year. They brought medical students from both their Louisiana and Auburn campuses. The students, along with their teachers (doctors) were able to serve approximately 100 people in each of the 4 different locations they visited. The personal attention they provide to the people they serve is so impactful, not just medically but also emotionally. Most of the people they served are accustomed to being treated quickly and often without any explanation of their diagnosis. The are always amazed at the kindness and the amount of time dedicated to understanding their health situation. VCOM will return in March with a different group of students to serve even more people. We are thankful for our collaborative relationship with VCOM.
