Unite for Sight

Are you interested in public health, medicine, social entrepreneurship, or international development? Unite For Sight’s Global Impact Corps is an immersive global health volunteer and education experience for students and professionals.  Volunteers participate with and learn from Unite For Sight’s talented local partner doctors who have provided care to 2 million patients living in poverty, including more than 90,000 sight-restoring surgeries. The local doctors are social entrepreneurs who are addressing complex public health issues, and volunteers gain a comprehensive understanding about the complexities and realities of global health.

Program Dates and Locations: Participate for one week, multiple weeks, or multiple months in Ghana, Honduras, or India. The program is available year-round, and it’s not too late to participate during the upcoming summer months!

Immersive Global Health Education: The Global Impact Corps directly teaches the importance of supporting and assisting local professionals in their own social ventures to eliminate health disparities in their communities and countries. The program offers an opportunity to learn from local medical professionals about effective strategies to reach the hardest-to-reach patients in villages, slums, and refugee camps.

Complete details and the online enrollment instructions can be seen on Unite For Sight’s website.

Please feel free to let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you during the upcoming months!

Sincerely,
Jennifer Staple-Clark
