AdventHealth University is practicing healthcare as ministry at home and around the world.


HONDURAS
April 21-28, 2020

By partnering with AdventHealth Global Mission Initiatives, a team of students will provide primary care outpatient services and health education to several Honduran villages. We are partnering with Hospital Adventista Valle de Angeles (HAVA) while in Honduras. HAVA is a fully functional private hospital complete with In-Patient Care, Emergency Department, Out-Patient Clinic, Operating Suite, and Physical Therapy. HAVA provides a tranquil and serene healing environment, far different from chaotic and crowded government-run hospitals located in Tegucigalpa. HAVA serves as the main medical facility for the 10,000-person community.

 


COSTA RICA
August 15-23, 2020

By partnering with Mission 517 at Florida Hospital Church, we will be sending a team of student and faculty volunteers to Costa Rica to impact a local community, public elementary school and clinic.

Work will include:

1. Local Clinics
Helping up to 200 patients each day with nurses and physician's assistance partnering with interpreters when needed 

2. Mobile Medical Van
Home visits and assessments 

3. Local Schools
Educational component including VBS, arts and crafts, English, physical education, painting, and maintenance

In addition to this intensive work, volunteers will spend the first Sabbath of the trip in a local church plant preaching, teaching, and building relationships. The second Sabbath will be spent in a local orphanage.
