About The Gauntlet for Global Health

The Gauntlet for Global Health is an initiative that seeks to support USF Health Nicaragua in its goal to provide sustainable access to healthcare for the impoverished community of Cedro Galán.

Who We Are

USF Health Nicaragua is an organization within the USF Morsani College of Medicine that was founded in 2013 and has since provided healthcare to thousands of patients in the community of Cedro Galán.

The Impact

The Gauntlet is our main fundraiser through which we can continually sustain our clinic in Nicaragua and expand our breadth of care. This event will recruit USF students, faculty and community members to help fundraise for our cause.

The donations will help us sustain our clinic, which is staffed year-round by a Nicaragua doctor, nurse and health promoter and will help expand our scope of care to the community. We would like help from our fellow USF and non-USF community members alike; whether through donations, participation or sharing our cause by telling family, friends, sharing our page, etc. – every bit helps! We thank everyone for their support in this endeavor; it means a lot to us at USF Health Nicaragua and our fellow community of Cedro Galán!
