Promoting healthcare in Turkey
Deniz Vatansever initiated the DocDoors project in his junior year at Trinity College, USA. Partnering with the University of Uludag Medical School in his home town of Bursa, Turkey, the project involved educational sessions, health screenings for more than 500 primary school children and created a fully equipped health clinic and nurses office.
Deniz says "At UWC, with the mission of promoting international peace, we were educated to become future leaders and activists who were brave enough to take initatives for the betterment of humanity. Following this ideology, I proposed the DocDoors project with the goal of creating a healthy environment for the children of tomorrow, who will become the future promoters of global peace."
