This trip was sponsored by the Baptist Collegiate Ministry from the University of Oklahoma Healthcare Sciences. Five of the students were awarded BMDF student scholarships allowing them to be able to go on this trip. Their appreciation for these scholarships can be found by clicking here: Testimonies | Baptist Medical Dental Fellowship (bmdf.org).
