Sustainable Asia through Medicine and Education (SAME) is a group focused on empowering volunteers to create sustainable solutions while fostering medical and educational needs to underprivileged regions throughout Asia. We are a group of passionate volunteers with a unified vision of promoting positive social change. Our main goal as volunteers is to empower under-resourced communities to decrease life-threatening diseases by providing public health education and medical services.
Through the public health branch, we provide education in areas of personal hygiene, sanitation, nutrition, and infectious disease to improve the community’s living conditions. We also partner with licensed physicians and health care providers to offer services such as dental, blood work, gynecological consultations, and home visits.
Through charting, we are able to create patient histories, providing sustainability and a holistic treatment plan for patients for years to come. With connections to local hospitals, we are able to refer our patients, allowing us to further care for their needs with tests such as x-rays, ultrasounds, EKG, CT scans, all labs tests and specialist evaluations.
