" I am honored to be a Millenium Fellow. I’m excited to work with the talented people chosen for this Fellowship and to be able to learn from them. I can’t wait to hear about their projects, ideas, and knowledge and how they used these to create positive changes in their communities.
I do what I do because I want to help as much people as I can. That is the reason I wanted to study medicine since I was a kid. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Brigadas Médicas
We provide free full medical check-ups for low income communities. We check our results with how many medical brigades we make per semester and how many people came to each brigade.
