Northwestern University Alliance for International Development (NU-AID)

Northwestern University Alliance for International Development (NU-AID)


NU-AID is a student group at the Feinberg School of Medicine that sponsors medical service trips to poor areas of Mexico and India during summer break. These powerful opportunities provide needed medical care for the communities we visit and extraordinary educational opportunity for medical students. These trips are just the international component of NU-AID, which also organizes health fairs for the medically under-served in our local Chicago community.
