- Guatemala Esperanza
- Jun 29
Ron Noecker, a 2007 ABSN JHU graduate, will be coming on 6/29/16 from 12:30-1:30pm in Room 009 at the SON to talk about his organization Nursing Heart and the global opportunity it sponsors: Guatemala Esperanza.
Ron Noecker graduated JHUSON in 2007, but his previous life was in ministry in Nebraska. His first trip to Guatemala was in 2004 at which time he began his effort to speak Spanish. During that year and a half, he taught piano and English while being drawn to nursing work. A group of Peace Corp volunteers working in the region suggested he should consider Hopkins Nursing. He went on line and the rest was history.
He finds the work in Guatemala is an exciting way to invite members of the nursing community into service of the poorest of the poor.
Ron is the founder of Nursing Heart. Nursing Heart, Inc. through its initiative Guatemala Esperanza promotes global health awareness and respect for cultural differences by creating international nursing experiences and collaborative community driven projects. Since 2012, Guatemala Esperanza has welcomed more than 500 team members to the country to offer supportive services to communities especially in the Highlands in the center of the country. Nursing students have the opportunity to learn firsthand about what it takes to organize service as a non-profit. They may engage in public health causes like installing high efficiency wood burning stoves or primary school wellness checks. Nurse practitioners have participated in primary care clinics and offered cervical cancer screenings. Every project is done according to legal standards required by the host country. Guatemalan doctors accompany most teams and offer assistance as the group carries out its community invited initiatives.
Nursing Heart, Inc. coordinates the unique program of each participating team. It prepares all logistical and program details for a visiting group and makes sure the group has the chance to experience cultural and geographic aspects of the country. See more about the work of Guatemala Esperanza at www.GuatemalaEsperanza.org.
Ron will be speaking about Guatemala Esperanza and how you can be involved. In the past, SON students have participated during this week-long trip to which Ron will speak about the roles.
We will be serving pasta during this event. To RSVP, please use this link: http://goo.gl/forms/mc4jASTD2QMZbLTY2. Hope to see you there!
