Several OSU-COM students, faculty and staff travelled to Uganda earlier this year as part of a medical mission to the war torn nation. The trip was documented in a short video, which features interviews with Stanley Grogg, D.O., associate dean of clinical research and medical director of service learning at OSU-CHS, and several medical students about their experience in Uganda in March and the services they provided to more than 1,200 underserved individuals.

During their time in Uganda, the team examined children at four locations including Blessings of Joy, Hope North, Mercy's Village and the Saint Monica Girls' Tailoring School.

OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine students Eryn Bass and Carolyn Long participated in the trip with recent alumni Anna Morgan, Lori Peters, J.J. Johnson and James Trina. OSU Medical Center pediatric resident Amrita Nagra also participated with OSU-CHS faculty members Harriett Shaw, D.O., and Bill See, D.O., and OSU-COM alumna Kerri Williams, D.O.

The trip was a collaborative effort between DOCARE International and Pros for Africa. The group is planning to return to Uganda in 2014.
