OSU-CHS medical students participate in medical mission to Uganda
A 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.
