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. 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. On the day of the event, teams compete in a scavenger hunt around downtown Tampa and spread the word in the community about the clinic and its lifechanging services.  

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

Your donations help us sustain our clinic, which is staffed year-round by a Nicaraguan doctor, nurse and health promoter and will help expand our scope of care to the community which includes providing medications and treatment for acute and chronic conditions. 

This year, the community needs our support more than ever because of the continued civil unrest and violence in Nicaragua. While our Nicaraguan doctor and nurse continue to see patients and keep the clinic running, we have lost major sources of funding due to the evacuation of all non-citizen personnel from the country. We need your help now more than ever to keep our patients healthy! 

Make Your Gift 

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 and spreading the word— every bit helps! 

Thank You

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!
