Celebrando 10 Años Juntos



Welcome to our STSG 10th Anniversary site! We are excited to celebrate our anniversary in Ecuador this year. STSG focuses on providing primary care for a community in Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas, Ecuador, where we have a year-round clinic. Aside from having rotations of healthcare students and interdisciplinary brigades to support care at the clinic, we seek to improve education, public health, access to safe water and economic opportunities in the region.

In addition to the student and professional staff who will apply their skills and talents to aid the Santo Domingo community during the May brigade, a delegation of UK representatives will be visiting the clinic in May. Provost Tim Tracy, various college deans and UK administrators will be exploring research and educational opportunities with the clinic, the community and Ecuadorian partner institutions.

Join us in our journey to celebrate the product of many years of hard work and collaboration between the University of Kentucky, Shoulder to Shoulder Global, Centro de Salud Hombro a Hombro, Hombro a Hombro and the Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas community. Explore this page where you will find more information about our program, hear from students about their experience in the brigade and more.
