And while many of the outreach opportunities are provided by the school itself, so many are grass roots student organizations. Kid Companions is a fantastic example of this sort of proactive community service, showing that Trinity students are already walking the walk of bedside manner and taking the initiative on their own to keep the humanity in medicine.  Read on to see, once again, why we're so proud of our students as they are today, and the doctors they will become.

Trinity School of Medicine Students Combine Study Break and Outreach, Host Carnival at Children's Home

 Trinity School of Medicine's student group "Kid Companions" returned to the St. Benedict Day Nursery and Children's Home in Georgetown, St. Vincent at the end of November, continuing their service, this time, to host a carnival for the home's residents. 

Since it's founding in February of 2016, Kid Companions has made regular visits to St. Benedict Day Nursery and Children’s Home (the last being in early October). Each visit is organized to provide entertainment and support of a different kind, and includes activities like playing games, coloring, and painting. While Trinity's involved students are very busy with their own medical education, they still endeavor to add a new element of support, stability, and fun for the home's residents.
