Shoulder to Shoulder Global: an interview with Craig Borie and Vanessa Martinez

For ten years, Shoulder to Shoulder Global has been serving impoverished communities in and near Santo Domingo, Ecuador. In 2002, Shoulder to Shoulder Global went on its first trip to help people in need of medical care. Groups of students, healthcare professionals, faculty and volunteers have been visiting multiple times a year ever since. Though the group’s goal is to provide healthcare, any interested student or community member can participate. 

This podcast features Craig Borie, the program coordinator for Shoulder to Shoulder Global, and Vanessa Martinez, a sociology & spanish major, and their insights and reflections on Shoulder to Shoulder. The group visits Ecuador three times annually, and STS is always accepting applications. Download the 2013 application here.

A&S Hive members Cheyenne Hohman and Dana Rogers visited Yiwen Chen's home in Yongja, Wenzhou. Wenzhou was a prosperous foreign treaty port, which remains well-preserved today. It is situated in a mountainous region and, as a result, has been isolated for most of its history from the rest of the country, making the local culture and language very distinct not only from the rest of China but from neighboring areas as well.
