The Student Impact of a Health TeleSquad

Written by Sydney Colbert

On September 22, 2021
Students Reflect on the Impact Made with the Community of El Jute

At the conclusion of a Global Health TeleSquad, students have the chance to reflect on the data and insights gathered during their TeleSquad experience. These reflections are presented in a final report which students share with their instructor, classmates, and GB staff during their final session.

 

In this report, students collect demographic data, generate diagnosis and treatment statistics, reflect on important takeaways from shadowing patient consultations, and share their favorite parts of the Health TeleSquad experience. Of the student’s reflections, it’s clear that one of the most impactful experiences of the Heath TeleSquad was the urban clinic in Tegucigalpa, Honduras!

Each Squad type has a skill-based focus area that support the education, health and economic development objectives of community partners.
