Last March we had a couple of dermatologists, Dr. Grace Banbow and Dr. Samer Jaber, who went on the mission, and after they returned home, they wrote an article that ended up being published in the Washington Post. One very important point they made was that one of the most useful items a volunteering dermatologist could bring with them on the mission is Vaseline. It has so many uses, and they had wished they had more of on the mission they volunteered on. So they recommended that all dermatologists be sure to bring some with them on future missions. Please be sure to click the link to article and read about their experience on the mission.
Vaseline saw this article, and ended up contacting us to offer to sponsor a total of 4 dermatologists on our March 2015 mission to Jordan. We have 2 spots left and are now accepting applications. Te sponsorship includes airfare, hotel for the mission, and the mission fee. Vaseline is also going to be sending more of their product to be used and distributed during the mission!
This is a wonderful opportunity, and we are very grateful to Vaseline, and we want to make the most of it. Please share this with any dermatology friends or colleagues. If they are interested in applying, please have them contact us for the registration forms. We will need the application, a cover letter, and their CV to make our selections, and the deadline to apply is January 15, 2015.
