What a trip. I’m filled with so many emotions, and I’m honestly so grateful I was able to have this amazing experience with such a caring and compassionate group of people. I gained more from this medical mission trip than I could’ve ever imagined, and I’m blessed that I’m able to call you all my friends. Working alongside such a dedicated group of pharmacists, physicians, APPs, nurses, and other hardworking individuals to provide medical care to those in need is an extremely gratifying feeling, and I  hope our impact on the patients’ resonates for the months to come. The patient population of Honduras is overall so kind/appreciative, and I will never forget the meaningful  interactions (even if my Spanish is pretty atrocious). Honduras was also one of the most, if not the most beautiful country I’ve ever visited.
