Penn State volunteers spend 7 days in Panama, improving basic home infrastructure and providing health education to help reduce the incidences of life-threatening, but preventable, diseases in a rural community. With an understanding of the holistic model that focuses on education, community health sustainability and infrastructural development, volunteers first receive a comprehensive introduction to the country's public health challenges and the Public Health program's ground-up solution. They will take a tour of the community Public Health is currently working in, introduce themselves to the beneficiary families, and meet with the Health Committee. Then, working side-by-side with community members and local masons, volunteers construct infrastructure projects meant to improve the health of the home and surrounding environment. Additionally, as a key component of the program, Penn State volunteers collaborate with the local Health Committee to help provide community-wide education workshops and training, proliferating sanitation and hygiene practices and empowering families with both the knowledge and tools to live healthier lives.

Annual Chapter Contribution
Jan 01, 2017 - Dec 31, 2017

Fundraise with your Public Health Brigades chapter on campus to meet the minimum $1,500 annual chapter contribution. The annual chapter contribution directly supports the Healthy Household Fund, which enables year-round public health initiatives in partner communities carried out by our local teams. The Healthy Household Fund is a critical component to GB’s Sustainable Transition Plan. Once a partner community has met specific health and economic development goals and brigades are no longer necessary, GB transitions projects fully to the community and offers follow-up with our local staff. The more you fundraise, the more impact we make together!
