EXPLORING A VOCATION THROUGH HEALTH CARE SERVICES IN UGANDA

Grace ClarkAssumption College has awarded Grace Clark ’19 a $3,500 Community Engagement Grant to travel to Uganda this summer, where she will explore her anticipated vocation of providing medical care to individuals in impoverished countries. Clark will travel to Uganda for the month of July as a participant in the Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children’s (FIMRC) Summer Health Fellowship.

Clark, a biology major who has traveled to Haiti a number of times to volunteer at the Be Like Brit orphanage – most recently in December 2016 -- is discerning a vocation in medicine, with a focus on serving disadvantaged populations in the third world.

The grant was awarded through the College’s High-Impact Summer Grant Program through SOPHIA (SOPHomore Initiative at Assumption)--one of many Assumption programs created to reflect the College’s mission to form graduates known for critical intelligence, thoughtful citizenship, and compassionate service.

Serving in the Bududa community, located in the eastern part of Uganda, Clark will work in health clinics, conduct community outreach and home health visits and develop and deliver health education lessons as she explores the field of humanitarian medicine.
