three volunteer students
The French organization Medecins Sans Frontiers (Doctors Without Borders) has gained much notoriety for its humanitarian healthcare efforts. The group sends volunteer physicians to areas in desperate need of health care services. A new College of Biological Sciences student group, launched this spring, is adapting the model for biology students eager to travel, gain experience and make a contribution.

Biology Without Borders (BWB) was formed to fill a niche for students interested in a more intensive, volunteer-based travel abroad experience. They began planning their first trip this spring.

Anh Tran, Jared Liebelt and Tiffany Felts are spending the month of August in Bukoba, Tanzania—a city of 80,000 located along the western shore of Lake Victoria. The trio is volunteering in hospitals and clinics in the region.
