Pursuant to making a decision to follow a medical career, Pennsylvania State University sophomore, Molly Young shadowed Dr. Talsania through a summer day in his office where he shared his experiences on his Guatemala missions.
Upon returning to school in the Fall, Molly pledged the sorority, Omega Phi Alpha which is a national service sorority committed to serving the local and university community, as well as the nations of the world. Each year the sorority does four projects serving; the local community, the university community (THON-for pediatric cancer), the national community and an international community.
When the 2014 pledge class was assigned to the “international community” project, Molly presented a case to sorority president to assist the Guatemala Healing Hands Foundation in providing care packages for the children of the mission. Dr. Talsania put her in contact with various board members to plan the packages which will include toiletries, art supplies, socks, and toys.
