Natalie Taylor, a Liberty County High School graduate who now is a junior at the University of Georgia, traveled to Lima Peru on Dec. 15-23 to assist with a Medlife Mobile Clinic.

Medlife Mobile Clinics deliver primary care services to individuals and families who otherwise lack access.

Taylor was one of approximately 100 students from across the country who traveled to Peru. During the week, she participated in various health-care stations, such as primary care, triage, dental, a children’s tooth-brushing station and gynecology. Each day, local health-care professionals traveled with the volunteers to set up tents that would serve the members of the poverty-stricken communities. In addition to the clinics, one day was devoted to the construction of stairs in a less-fortunate area of Lima where its inhabitants struggle daily to walk up the mountainside on which their homes are built.

Taylor is majoring in biology with a minor in public health.
