The College of Arts and Sciences produces podcasts that demonstrate work being done by the faculty and students in the college. Each week, UKNow will highlight a podcast. This week focuses on Shoulder to Shoulder Global.
For 10years, Shoulder to Shoulder Global has been serving impoverished communities in and near Santo Domingo, Ecuador. In 2002, Shoulder to Shoulder Global went on its first trip to help people in need of medical care. Groups of students, health care professionals, faculty and volunteers have been visiting multiple times a year ever since.
Though the group’s goal is to provide healthcare, any interested student or community member can participate.
This podcast features Craig Borie, the program coordinator for Shoulder to Shoulder Global, and Vanessa Martinez, a sociology & Spanish major, who provide insights and reflections on Shoulder to Shoulder.
The group visits Ecuador three times annually, and STS is always accepting applications. Download the 2013 application here
