DIII Week Feature: Wellesley Student-Athletes Volunteer in Nicaragua

This winter, cross country/track & field student-athlete Sophie Dolan '20 and volleyball student-athlete Meghan Shoop '20 joined a group of Wellesley students as volunteers for Wellesley Global Medical Brigades, traveling to Nicaragua for nine days as part of the Wellesley chapter of the non-profit global health and sustainable development organization that also has chapters at many colleges and universities worldwide. For Shoop the experience was her second trip, while it was the first for Dolan. On the trip, Dolan and Shoop set-up a medical/dental clinic that will offer basic health care and health education sessions to rural regions. They also volunteered alongside local health care providers.
