“I encourage Spaugh Dameron Tenny to continue to pour its resources into physicians, resident physicians in particular. An experience like this as a resident has the power to influence entire careers. The GotoGrow scholarship enables residents who are tight on money to pursue exciting and life-changing experience. Thank you for creating a program to nudge physicians toward charitable work. I believe this scholarship will have an effect that ripples throughout entire organizations.”
-Joanna Young, DO | First GOtoGROW Winner | Internal Medicine Resident
Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere
Nicaragua is the 2nd poorest country in the Western Hemisphere
Only 1 in 3 children in Haiti go to school
40% of children under the age of 5 suffer from chronic malnutrition
Going Where Help is Needed
Haiti and Nicaragua are the two poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere and medical teams are always needed to help their citizens survive.
Continue The Mission
Since 2010, Bless Back Worldwide has provided care for over 20,000 patients. We launched GOtoGROW in January of 2018 and have selected five GOtoGROW scholarship winners to serve in Haiti & Nicaragua this year.
Follow Your Passion For Helping Others
Your passion for helping others helps drive you in your role as a physician and the opportunity to follow that passion while serving those in need will only enhance your personal journey.
Using Your Skills to Bless Others
Taking part in a Go to Grow mission trip is a great way to follow your passion while helping those who need it most. If chosen, you’ll work in a community of clinic, help mentor local providers, and promote public health initiatives.
