OSU-CHS medical students participate in medical mission to Uganda

Uganda Trip Group ShotA group of 21 medical professionals and students from across the United States, led by Stanley Grogg, D.O., associate dean of clinical research and medical director of service learning at OSU-CHS, traveled to Uganda from March 15-22 to provide medical care to approximately 1,200 underserved individuals.

Grogg served as chief medical officer and his wife Barbara, a nurse practitioner, was the mission director. The group, which included six OSU-COM medical students, one OSU pediatric resident and one OSU-COM graduate, examined children at four locations including Blessings of Joy, Hope North, Mercy's Village and the Saint Monica Girls' Tailoring School.

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