Alex Wagenbrenner- Medical mission to the Philippines


Aashik Raman

Alex Wagenbrenner, a junior at Mountain View High School, recently embarked on a medical mission on the island of Mindoro in the Philippines. He attended as an intern to Dr. Henry Hamilton MD, who went along with two groups of Doctors. These doctors included gynecologist and plastic surgeons, both of whom provided medical care to those who did not have access to modern medicine. During the mission Wagenbrenner assisted surgeries, carrying patients in and out of the operating room and eventually had to the opportunity to suture a patient after their surgery was finished. Wagenbrenner hopes to pursue a future in physical therapy so that he can combine his love for sports with his love for helping those in need.
