Alok Shrestha, an enthusiastic young medical student at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Suwanee, GA is raising funds to run and organize a small clinic in Nepal this summer. This is the 2nd annual Medical Mission Trip to Nepal. He is taking lead on this project as a part of an International Medicine Club at his school, which plans on sending a group of medical students to Nepal in the small village of Johr for two weeks to volunteer and promote public health in a rural community. 15 medical and pharmacy students along with a handful of Nepalese doctors will provide basic medical care to this very underserved area of Nepal.

Alok Shrestha, president of International Medicine Club, Despite of being raised in Georgia, Alok still has strong ties to Nepal and Nepalese culture. Alok had the opportunity to spend time with people in Nepal last summer, and learned more about his heritage and connection with his roots.
The mission trip last year saw 650 Nepalese patients but they expect to see more this year!
