FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Nova Southeastern rowers Haley McKissack (Jr., Orange Park, Fla.) and Megan O'Donnell (Jr., Lake Worth, Fla.) will be spending their winter break in Peru as part of a medical mission trip with NSU's chapter of MEDLIFE. 

Both rowers will leave for Lima on Dec. 14 and spend eight days in South America. The trip will serve as a medical mission to provide basic medical care for an impoverished community. They will also be working on a service project as well as educating the community to live healthier lives.

The trip is in conjunction with MEDLIFE, whose mission is to help families achieve greater freedom from the constraints of poverty, empowering them to live healthier lives. They aim to achieve this goal through partnering with motivated individuals in poor communities working to improve their access to MEDs: Medicine, Education and community Development. The group has a large presence in South Florida with six chapters at different universities in the tri-county area.

Check back with at the end of the month for a recap of their service trip.
