School has begun and autumn is here. We hope you had as wonderful a summer as we had here at Hope Through Healing Hands.
During the summer break, we had 7 Global Health Leaders travel to

In total, these students touched the lives of over 5000 people in villages around the world. They saw over 1800 patients, trained over 100 community health workers, educated over 2000 people on basic health such as dental hygiene, hand washing, and HIV/AIDS, and surveyed over 600 people to assess needs such as clean water and better family health care.
You can read all their blogs on our website:

Please support our Global Health Leaders program so that we can continue to reach our goal of directly touching the lives of over 20,000 people around the world with health care in the next few years.
Bill Frist, M.D.
