Join RMUoHP in the spirit of service

Each year, RMUoHP Students, Faculty and Staff travel over 20,000 miles to aid the wonderful people of Africa, many of them are children. The focus is to improve lives and future generations. Regarding the students, President Rick Nielsen has said, “We train their hands and we train their minds, the Africa experience trains their hearts”. Volunteers build schools and render care in various healthcare settings. Often, it’s the volunteers that have a life changing experience.

“Our Africa school will accommodate more than 30,000 children over the 70-year life span . These children will have a better chance at life; a better chance to have better occupations; a better chance to make a better life for themselves as they progress through the education system.”
– President Rick Nielsen
“Every day in Africa was an experience. I felt every day changed me inside.”
– Mandy Clark
“I shared a quote, ‘Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.’ The people of Malawi reminded me of an important lesson: Things are just things and don’t really matter. What matters is people and how you make them feel.”
– Janelle Udall, Pre-DPT Student
“People want to be loved, accepted and have a purpose.”
– Evan Gillespie, Pre-PA Student
“I don’t know if I have words to express the changes and how I feel and view the world and community since returning from our expedition. It was absolutely life-changing. I am not the same person as who I was boarding the plane in Salt Lake City.”
– Crystal Miskin DPT Student
“I know there are more ways this experience has changed me, like being grateful every day for what I have and where I live, but I believe these three have been the biggest as I am reminded of them again, almost every day. I’ve always had a heart to serve others and this experience has only strengthened my drive to serve people, whether that’s in Africa or where I am in Utah.”
