Update from MedPLUS intern

Kate is one of our great interns--read below as she shares her experiences with MedPLUS Connect. Currently, Kate is working to collect donations of medical supplies for an ophthalmologist (eye doctor) in Ghana. Email her at donate@medplusconnect.org if you have any ophthalmology supplies to donate!

Hello All… Kate here! I hope everyone is having a joyous start to 2011! I wanted to take the time to talk to you about some of the exciting things that I have been working on. Recently I have assembled a Booklet about MedPLUS, including everything from how to get involved to information about the organization in general. My hope is that this will serve as an excellent resource for all. There is one line in the booklet that has really stuck with me, and I wanted to share it with you all. The line reads; “our hope is that you will feel as connected to our mission as we do.” I wanted to share this with you because I feel that it cuts straight to the heart of the mission of MedPLUS. We are all involved with MedPLUS because we feel so incredibly connected to the people in Ghana and their need and right to quality health care. I invite you all to read over our website more and get involved! Maybe you get involved by spreading the word about our mission to your friends. Maybe you get involved by foregoing eating out one day to instead donate a few dollars to help us meet our goals. However you decide to get involved, my hope is that you will find the experience as rewarding as I have. Keep checking back to our blog to learn more about our exciting work! As always, email us at medplusconnect@gmail.com with any questions.
