Resident to make mission trip to Nicaragua

Long added that each doctor is allowed to bring one suitcase and they have to bring their own toilet paper, or use what the refugees use, which is newspaper. Also in Long's suitcase will be expired medications that she has been accumulating from her office.

“Expired meds are better than no meds,” she said.

She plans to leave all of her clothing with the refugees at the end of the mission, thus coming home with an empty suitcase.

“I may even leave the suitcase and just come home with a heart full of gratitude for this opportunity to give back,” she said.
