Morgan Johnston of Alliance was among 21 members of the University of Nebraska-Kearney chapter of Volunteers Around the World that traveled to the remote islands around Panama last month to work in mobile medical clinics that provided free care and medication to more than 300 patients.

UNK students, most of whom are pursuing degrees in health care-related fields, brought that care to six different communities during the two-week outreach trip that began May 24. Working alongside Panamanian doctors, the students established mobile medical clinics in Bocas del Toro, a province that includes an island chain in the Caribbean Sea.
