Tara Wright McGehee, Medical Student

Richmond, Virginia

Tara is a senior medical student at VCU School of Medicine who is pursuing a career in ophthalmology.  Tara's passion for working in developing nations started while studying abroad in Peru in college, and she fell in love with the people of Honduras during a mission trip in 2010.  During Project Vision, Tara hopes to learn more about the prevalence of cataracts and other eye diseases and the impact cataract removal is having on the vision and quality of life of the patients in San Lorenzo and surrounding communities.  She also hopes to utilize her medical Spanish and to learn about the logistics of what makes a successful brigade, as she hopes to continue international mission work throughout her career.  Our thanks go to her preceptor, Dr Steven Crossman, who directs the medical mission program of the VCU School of Medicine, called Hombre, as part of his work as professor in the Department of Family Medicine at VCU.  He recognized Tara's unique capabilities and introduced her to Project Vision.
