Gamma Zeta Alumnus Dr. Seth Berl ’78 has participated in 20 medical/dental mission trips to Honduras and led them for the last 13 years. Dr. Tom Sullivan ’78 has joined Seth for the last four years. Last year for the first time, two Gamma Zeta undergrads, Joe Pearson ’15 and Paul Jaroslawski ’15 joined the team and had an incredible experience. We’re very pleased to announce that Gamma Zeta alumni will be sponsoring at least two undergrads to join the trip again March 5-12, 2016.
