Jose's Hands

Jose's Hands is a non-profit organization (501c(3)) that awards scholarships to health students, connects them with medical mission trips, and helps them fund-raise to go on these trips. Founded in 2009 to honor the late Maj. Jose Jamil Miranda, MD, MPH, US Army, Jose’s Hands aims to address the shortage of mission doctors and professionals while the world’s under-served population continues to grow.

Medical mission trips help medical school students grow as a person and as a  future health professional, expanding their knowledge and medical vocation, taking them out of their comfort zone and giving them the opportunity to have more hands-on clinical experience, it fosters sympathy, compassion, and selflessness in the individual who is going, but also helps build long lasting friendships and promotes comradery, and last but not least it gives students an opportunity to travel to countries and villages that they might not get to know otherwise.
